CREATING PRIVACY BETWEEN NEIGHBORS WITH BRIAN ZIMMERMAN

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2018 FROM 7:00 TO 9:00 PM

PREPARING FOR SPRING ~ Join us on Thursday, February 15 for an evening with Northern Michigan’s nursery professional Brian Zimmerman. He will provide tips on creating beautiful privacy options in our yards. There is no fee for this class. Free-will donations are greatly appreciated and will support The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park. This class is open to the public but advance registration is requested. To sign up, go to www.thebotanicgarden.org/events.

CLASS DETAILS ~ Most of us find our home to be our sanctuary, a place to find peace away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Our exterior living spaces can also be cultivated to provide us with the privacy to relax outdoors. Nursery professional Brian Zimmerman will provide us with information on creating screenings for outdoor spaces. He will discuss using plants, structural elements, or a combination of the two approaches to create a private and tranquil space.
