“Putting Style into Your Garden,” will outline steps to create gardens with various theme and intentions. Hardscape materials, plant material, furniture, lighting, decorations, water features, outbuildings, garden decorations – all must complement – not overpower, to achieve a unique style that evokes the personality of the garden and the gardener. Carloftis will suggest sustainable, earth-friendly garden products dedicated to beautiful and functional outdoor living.
The Chattanooga Arboretum and Nature Center board has selected Carloftis – a Kentucky native with strong ties to the land and the dedication to protect it – to design the first Grandmothers Garden in the Southeastern United States to be constructed at Reflection Riding.
Carloftis is a regular contributor to national garden and lifestyle publications, with more than 200 feature stories to his credit. His career includes appearances on The Style Channel; The Home and Garden (HGTV) Channel (The Secret Gardens of New York); ABC’s Good Morning, America; and Martha Stewart. He has served on HGTV’s Trend Advisory Board. He has written a wide variety of garden books: First a Garden (2005); Beyond the Windowsill (2007); and Beautiful Gardens of Kentucky (2010).
