Top 10 Gardening & Landscaping Blunders – and How to Avoid Them!

Don Engebretson, The Renegade Gardener, is eager to help gardeners severely limit the “staggering failure” part of the equation, and does so in his presentation, “Top 10 Gardening & Landscaping Blunders—and How to Avoid Them.”

Sure, gardening is fun, soothing, enriching and all of that, but don’t always believe it when you see a landscaping project described as “easy,” or a plant touted as “foolproof.” Fact is, gardening is a lifelong learning process that involves more than a little guesswork, serendipity, and experimentation. Down the road, every gardener is sure to discover that startling success sometimes goes hand-in-hand with staggering failure.

Show Times:

  • Friday – 5 PM
  • Saturday – 11 AM, 4 PM

Yes You Can! Landscape Design for Homeowners

What’s more DIY than gardening? Except homeowners discover that planting a shrub is one thing; creating a professional, functional design plan for their property is another.

“I want to landscape my own yard but don’t know the steps, or where to begin,” is something Don has heard a thousand times. Don takes you through every step of the design process and instills the knowledge and confidence you need to create the beautiful yard, garden, and overall landscape you have always yearned for.

Attend one of the below show times to get gardening tips and learn how to avoid some of the most common landscaping blunders!

Doreen Stovenour – Did You Know DIY

A wife, mom and friend…Doreen’s love of the microphone and making up songs to well-known tunes was born from her time as the ‘mean lunch lady’ and then a pre-school assistant teacher.

After years of hearing people say ‘How did you think of that?!’ (after, say, she made a desk from a FREE piano) or her saying ‘Did you know….?’ (after maybe she found a great way to let the light into a window, but keep eyes out), DID YOU KNOW DIY was born.

Plan to attend her seminars for tidbits on…

  • Using / reusing
  • Recycling
  • Redecorating
  • Nifty products
  • Rethinking how to organize and use things in every part of your house

See Doreen:

  • Friday: 4 PM
  • Saturday: 12 PM, 2 PM, 4 PM
  • Sunday: 12 PM, 2 PM, 4 PM
