I would like to send a heartfelt thanks to Carolyn Mullet, the owner of Carex Tours, and dedicated host of the infamous Facebook page “Garden Design by Carolyn Mullet” that boasts nearly 1.5 MILLION FANS from around the globe, for spearheading an effort to invite me to speak to her regional chapter of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers earlier this month! The event was held in the Great Hall of the Silver Spring Civic Building, and around 100 people attended on Saturday, February 11th.
“All About the Details: Stone, Wood & Metal in Landscape Design” was meant to inspire my fellow designers and landscape architects to draw from their personal life experiences, and to incorporate “outside the box” thinking when it comes to dreaming up new design scenarios for their client’s homes. I met so many lovely people and greatly appreciated the delicious lunch afterwards where we engaged in thoughtful discussions about today’s trends in residential landscape design. Thank you APLD DC-MD-VA, and Lynley Ogilvie, Molly Scott, and Scott Pitner, for being such accommodating hosts! I look forward to remaining in touch!
