Our speakers for September are Rich and Susie Eyre of Rich’s Foxwillow Pines in Woodstock. The program is entitled, ‘Inspirational Gardens and Plants’.
This is a 60 minute slide show. Rich Eyre takes you around the world to garden and plants that inspired him. As a result, we have a chance to enhance our designs with a great idea, new layout or better use of plants in the landscape. He hopes this presentation will introduce the viewers to design concepts that will give their gardens a new special look.
