Sanger House Gardens is a unique 2/3 acre garden located close to downtown Milwaukee in the charming historic district of Brewers Hill. Inspired by English and Mediterranean gardens, the beautiful grounds feature hundreds of plantings of trees, evergreens, shrubs, grasses and perennials as well as salvaged architectural accents. The garden was the subject of a 14 page article in the April 2019 issue of Fine Gardening magazine. The seminar will be situated in the midst of a quaint carriage house, lathe house and various courtyards and patios.
