SIGC Announces October 8 Meeting: “Curb Appeal by Design”

How many times have you thought or heard, “HELP! How do I fix this yard?” Well, the Seabrook Island Garden Club is here to help, and we have a very special “can’t miss this” kick off with our October meeting! Read on!

Our Friday, October 8, meeting is with Ryan Watkins, Lead Landscape Consultant and General Manager at Brownswood Nursery & Landscape. Ryan is a 3rd Generation Grower, South Carolina Certified Nursery Professional with 15 years of horticultural experience and three years of experience as a Horticulture Instructor for the City of Charleston. Ryan’s Landscape Design and Installation work has been featured on HGTV, DIY Network, WCSC Channel 5, and WCBD Channel 2.

Topics to be covered are customized specifically for Seabrook Island: replace/enhance/embellish plants & trees, dealing with salt & salinity in your soil, deer, the four fundamentals of landscape design, specific plants, grasses, palms and thriving in sun vs. shade.

And here’s a very special kicker, for garden club members only, send us a front yard photo by end of day Saturday, October 2, for a chance to be selected for a “live redo” of your front yard and a gift certificate to Brownswood. Send your photo to Brownswood will also bring additional plants for a raffle pick at the end of Ryan’s presentation.

Please arrive around 9:30 am. There will be a short business meeting at 9:45 am and Ryan will begin his presentation at 10:00.

The ’21-22 Seabrook Island Garden Club focuses on those who have an active interest in horticulture and artistic design, community beautification, ecology and philanthropy.
