How Does Your Garden Grow?
Whether you want to redesign your landscape
or keep deer and rabbits from eating
it, look to the Library for answers. In
March, the Library will offer two special
programs for gardeners.
Many homeowners who want to make
changes to their landscapes don’t know
where to begin, what questions to ask, or
how to work with a landscape designer
or landscape architect. In her new book,
Garden Renovation: Transform Your Yard
into the Garden of Your Dreams, landscape
designer Bobbie Schwartz draws on her
years of experience to help assess your
current garden and devise a plan to tackle
your gardening project. Meet the author
at 7 pm Thursday March 22 at Main
Library when the self-described “obsessed
gardener” talks about landscape design
and how to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Schwartz is the
owner of Bobbie’s

is a regular contributor to publications

Following her presentation, books will be
available for sale and signing.
Do you have deer, chipmunks, skunks,
or rabbits frolicking in your garden and
dining on your carefully tended plants?
Cuyahoga County Master Gardeners can
tell you “How to Keep the Uninvited at
Bay: The Problem of Wildlife in Our
Gardens” at 7 pm Wednesday, March 14
at Bertram Woods Branch. Their talk will
focus on the problems and they will suggest
deer and rabbit resistant plants along with
humane options for repelling and keeping
these pesky critters away from your garden.
