This is a hands-on workshop that will look at the creation of a beautiful water feature. Rob has extensive experience in creating water gardens and has learned the intricacies of creating a functional water system and how to avoid some common mistakes. Rob will do a quick review of some of the material from Part One (a talk in early 2020), using his extensive pond and stream system as an example. The class will continue on with: an onsite review of the types and purposes of water features; key interests and design considerations; discussion of materials and construction and mock-up of some of the most important details and techniques involved in creating a beautiful water feature. Participants will be able to ask questions about their specific interests and there may be an opportunity for a case study.
Workshop will go rain or shine, so please dress accordingly for the weather. Bring a good pair of work gloves and sturdy footwear, also a hat, water bottle, sunscreen and bug repellent.
Date and time: July 24 @ 9-1 rain or shine
Registered participants will receive an email providing directions to the workshop site in the Bearspaw area, NW of Calgary.
