Do It Yourself Hardscape
Hardscaping is a term that refers to the permanent, man-made features of a landscape made from stone, brick, etc., rather than plants. Somerville Garden Club members, Dorothy Africa, Rita Edmunds, Evelyn Persoff, Joe Kelleher, and Alison Davis will describe the steps theyâ€™ve taken to build hardscapes in their own gardens.

The SGC meetings begin with announcements and an open roundtable discussion of gardening questions, followed by an invited speaker. Recent presentations have included pruning techniques, propagating heirloom tomatoes, composting and organic soil amendments, integrated pest management, and dry shade gardening. Talks are delivered by local experts and well known horticultural professionals. Every meeting ends with a raffle of donated plants and garden items. The meetings are free and open to the public.
