Medfield Garden Club Hosts
“The Art of the Vignette: Gardening in Small Spaces”
with Cheryl Monroe
You’ve downsized. You don’t want the responsibility of a large garden anymore. You’re busy with kids and grandkids. You’ve got an area on the side of the house or garage that needs cleaning up and beautification. Not to worry! You can still have a stunning garden even in a small space. Small gardens, tiny terraces and petite patios may require a little more thought than larger spaces, but even the tiniest plot can be transformed into an elegant outdoor retreat. Small gardens have many advantages—the biggest is that they’re wonderfully low-maintenance. They’re also great spaces to be creative, as even the smallest additions, from colorful cushions to stylish garden lighting, will have a dramatic effect.
On Wednesday, February 14, the Medfield Garden Club welcomes Cheryl Monroe presenting, “The Art of the Vignette, Gardening in Small Spaces.” This is a fun design presentation illustrating how to effectively use small spaces in the garden to convey a sense of drama and personal style and how to avoid common faux pas in small gardens. Cheryl will teach use of color, design features and how to incorporate objects d’art to draw the eye and create fabulous vignettes that will have your visitors admiring your design and gardening skills.
Cheryl Monroe is a licensed adult educator who follows the science, reading constantly and taking classes to stay current with the latest in plant research, new plant introductions and design trends. Cheryl, an avid gardener, strives to have a beautiful, pest-free garden on her one acre plot in central Massachusetts where she grows hundreds of species of perennials, vining plants, trees and shrubs.
