Speaker: Leslie Cohen, Owner and Principal Designer at Leslie Cohen Design

Whether you have a small patio or several acres, planning how you want to use your outdoor space will help you create a landscape that accommodates your lifestyle.  Developing the optimal garden goes far beyond choosing appealing plants. Incorporating social and dining areas, meditation or relaxation zones, play areas, water features, pet areas, and any other special desires is equally important.  Planning your garden space in advance will also help you create natural connections between spaces, convenient indoor-outdoor living, zones for compatible plant types.
