In a virtual class, learn about garden makeovers from Deborah Chud’s portfolio, looking at wild landscapes and natural elements. She will take the group inside her solutions to garden dilemmas. The specific dilemmas addressed in this class involve replacement of traditional shrubs, integration of a valued backdrop and existing trees, and whether there can be too much of a good thing in a garden.

Deborah Chud is a retired Massachusetts physician turned garden maker, consultant and educator. Her six years of research on New Perennial gardens, including those at New York City’s High Line, Chicago’s Lurie Garden, the Oudolf Meadow at Delaware Botanic Gardens, and Oudolf Garden Detroit, generated a comprehensive existing database of New Perennial plant combinations and led to the creation of her own highly unusual New Perennial garden.

In the fall of 2020, she presented her work as part of “Piet Oudolf: How Does He Do It?”– an international event organized by Piet Oudolf’s co-author, Noel Kingsbury, under the aegis of Garden Masterclass.
