This presentation explores the myriad ways in which structure is created in the landscape using natural stone. Where to place stone in the garden, as in stone walls to define garden areas, paths, walkways and patios to direct one through the garden where one may happen upon stone follies, benches, seats, mosaics or other whimsies are topics which will be covered. Thought will be given as to which material is most suitable to creating contrast or harmony.
Born in Yorkshire, England, Andrew Pighills is an accomplished gardener, horticulturist and builder of dry stone walls. He received his formal horticulture training with The Royal Horticultural Society and has spent 30 years creating gardens and building dry stone walls in his native England in and around the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
The event will be presented live at Emanuel Synagogue and via Zoom, and is free for CHS members. Non-members may register here.
