Nancy Duffy will share her insights and expertise regarding using grasses and grass-like plants in the landscape. Specific focus areas include:

  • Different types of grass-like plants – Sedges have edges 
  • Why grasses are valuable components of a landscape
  • How to design with grasses from natural meadows to highly stylized compositions
  • Specific grasses for various garden situations
  • Basics of planting and maintaining grasses

 Nancy  Duffy is the owner of Muddy Boots Garden Design and has been designing gardens in WNC for nearly 20 years.  She is a trained horticulturalist and enjoys creating gardens that suit each person for whom she designs.  Inspired by Piet Oudolf, Nancy designed her first meadow garden in 2011 and never looked back.  Her current and largest project is the design of a quarter-mile long urban meadow at Camp North End in Charlotte, NC.  She shares her personal four-acre garden, Acorn Hill, with her husband Dennis, their German Shepherd Dog Gidget and cats Lily and Margo.

The Garden Club of Weaverville is a co-ed, non-profit organization open to everyone. For more information on what we do, becoming a member or supporting the club visit our website.
