What a delight! Karen is an acclaimed speaker and author who took the time to arrive early and interact with our garden club as they arrived for her program. She is a relaxed,professional, available, enthusiastic and focused in a delight full balance. Her program is beautifully laid out in a focused, organized format that includes personal intimacy. Lots of shared asides. You have the experience of talking with a friend about their garden and how they organized what is important to them when they designed it. Thoughtful, provoking directions and connections that encourage the gardener to work with expressing color and form creatively to achieve beautiful garden designs. Such great take aways &-)!

Our garden club thoroughly enjoyed Karen's presentation. She provided great ideas on both why and how to use focal points and vignettes in the garden. Her explanations were clear and easy to understand and were accompanied by photos that beautifully illustrated each point. Karen is a delightful speaker and a pleasure to work with.

Our dahlia audience was inspired by the enthusiastic and knowledgeable presentation of Karen Chapman. She offered her insights into creating and maintaining striking containers and illustrated the talk with examples of her own creations. We hope to have her back with more of these,specific to integrating dahlias in the landscape.

Karen’s thoughtful vision of the designing process was presented to the audience in simple and understandable ways. She shared plenty of useful tips for the creating outdoor garden spaces that are functional, attractive, long-lasting and artful. Her lessons in US Botanic Garden on foliage and focal points, and deer resistant designs, were very inspiring for me, and I highly recommend these presentations for gardeners and landscape designers of all skill levels.
