Phipps Conservatory and Botanic Gardens Master Gardener and landscape designer Claire Schuchman will teach this three-week course geared to the novice. We will use the concepts of sustainable design like "right plant/ right place”; shading out weeds with ground covers; use of hardy natives plants; and installing rain barrels or permeable pavement. Please bring: graph paper, pencils, ruler, package of different colored pencils, and some 18"- 24" tracing paper. Students will benefit from having a plot plan or a survey of their property, if available, and pictures of gardens they like.

  • Week One (3/9): site analysis, which is simply an inventory of site features including the house, a garage, trees, paths, driveways, easements or even a bad view. Also things like soil conditions, wind, shade and sun.
  • Week Two (3/16): the dreaming begins when the students will develop a "program" which includes planning for outdoor activities like children's play areas, a pool or pond, entertaining, and napping, as well as privacy, lighting and security. These ideas will go on paper and be moved around like a jig-saw puzzle until the student is happy with the placement.
  • Week Three (3/23): we take all that information and begin to put it into a realistic form using the scale of 1" = 8' on graph paper. Supportive materials covered during the three sessions will include a discussion on the five elements of good design, necessary tools to accomplish the plan, and a time for practical questions and answers. No advance registration is required; however, participants should plan to attend all three sessions and bring the recommended supplies and information about their property to get the most out of this landscaping course.

Claire Schuchman is a local landscape designer, Master Gardener, and frequent contributor to the Mt Lebanon Magazine. Her garden has been featured on past Mt. Lebanon Public Library Annual Garden Tours and the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden’s Open Gardens Tour. Contact her at Claire.CS@ExceptionalGardens.net. Presented in cooperation with the Mt. Lebanon Public Library Garden Tour Committee.

This program is jointly sponsored by the Mt. Lebanon Library Garden Tour Committee and the Pittsburgh Rose Society
