Cashiers Garden Design School

By Mary Palmer Dargan

The techniques of building a healthy garden that’ll serve as a personal reflection are unveiled in a pair of workshops offered at Dovecote Barn in Cashiers. For more information, call (828) 743-0307.

If you’re ready for a deep dive into the intricacies of envisioning and building a timeless garden, sign up for Cashiers Garden Design School, set for August 8 through 11, and August 9 through 10, at Dovecote Barn, 35 Flashpoint Drive in Cashiers.

The August 8 through 11 session is meant for Lifelong Landscape Designers and will be led by nationally-recognized landscape architects Mary Palmer and Hugh Dargan. Participants will be able to customize their home environment on paper.

The Dargans will deliver lessons on the latest garden trends, building healthy and beautiful garden environments, correcting tricky places, and the history of garden design. Plant materials will be augmented with a trip to the nursery, along with workshops in plant material uses and home remedy preparation. Two of the days are dedicated days toward participants’ garden designs. At the end of the session, each student will receive a garden design certificate and take home a plan of action.

Lifelong Landscape Philosophers are invited to attend August 9 and 10 to create a mental map of their home environment and participate with the lifelong Landscape Designers, but will not create a final project. Participants may bring a friend and enjoy lectures, join in garden study in the field, visit the nursery, and learn through hands-on garden design.

Both Landscape Designers and Landscape Philosophers may join in cocktail gatherings, visits to inspirational private gardens and a finale dinner together.

To register or for more information, call (828) 743-0307 or email mpdargan@dargan.com.
