Principles of Landscape Design for the
Home Gardener with Gaele McCully
In many instances, people pay more attention to the interior part their house and less to the exterior landscaping, but a good landscape design can increase the value of your home by at least 5 to 11 percent. The best part is that even though landscaping is one of the most valuable home improvements you can make, it’s also one of the easiest. Gaele McCully, of Mahoney's Nursery in Winchester, a Massachusetts-certified Landscape Designer, will tell us how to enhance the appeal of our property by selecting the appropriate shrubs, trees, plants, and flowers.
At the Lexington Depot. Coffee at 9:30 AM; business meeting and program follow at 10.

The Quabbin Reservoir is the largest inland body of water in Massachusetts, and was built between 1930 and 1939. Today, along with the Wachusett Reservoir, it is the primary water supply for Boston, some 65 miles to the east, as well as 40 other communities in Greater Boston. Executive Director of Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust, Leigh Youngblood, will discuss the construction of the reservoir, the four lost towns of the Quabbin Reservoir - Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott - and the land, water, wildlife, and people that persevere there today. Many individuals living in the greater North Quabbin region where Mount Grace conserves and stewards land have parents who experienced the relocation, keeping the legacy very much alive today. Constant encounters with landowners, foresters, biologists, surveyors, historians, artists, anglers, poets, and others inform a balanced perspective between the practical and the personal.
LFGC and Cary Library are sponsoring this talk held in the large meeting room of Cary Library.
