Andrew Cutright, landscape architect and president of Greensward, spoke on "Hardscape Elements in the Garden" at the March meeting of the garden club.  Admirably he was able to condense 20 years of design experience into an easily grasped and interesting overview of the principle design elements found in most landscapes.  Andrew's accompanying photographs of his firm's unique outdoor designs were impressive and prompted numerous questions from the members.
