Designing the Rose Bed

Buck Abbey, Landscape Architect

Associate Professor Dennis “Buck” Abbey retired in May 2013 after teaching design, site engineering, graphics, and professional practice courses at the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture for almost 40 years. He taught the only course on municipal green laws in the nation. Buck will share with us his design for the 2 big beds on the west side of the rose garden at Independence Park.

Come learn from Buck and take some of his ideas for incorporating perennials and shrubs into the roses back to your home landscape.
