Now in its 11th year the Wicker Park Garden Club’s workshop is taught by 6 professional designers and 15 veteran gardens from all over Chicagoland. The 8 week series takes the students through the process of design - both in lectures and in weekly hands-on design projects:

  • Creating a site plan
  • Determining usage and bed areas
  • Incorporating architectural influences of the home into the landscape design
  • Exploring various hardscape and water usage options
  • Studying and designing with various sustainable plant palettes for sun and shade
  • Learning to incorporate 4 season interest into your designs
  • Understanding native and sustainable plant palettes and how to work with them
  • Incorporating vegetables and herbs into your home landscape design.

Students work will be view and critiqued weekly by the instructors and by other students.
