Looking for a low-maintenance landscape option?

Join us to learn how to NATURESCAPE your yard!

Naturescaping is the practice of designing (or redesigning) a landscape so that it reduces water use, decreases stormwater runoff and pollution while saving you time, money and energy. This introductory workshop introduces naturescaping concepts, including:

•pollution prevention through the reduction/elimination of chemical use

•how native plants help create a thriving landscape that’s attractive to native birds, butterflies and other pollinators

•basic site planning principals, an introduction to native plants, and many other great gardening tips

Workshop participants will get advice on native plant gardening & landscape design and will look at a variety of native plants.

Even if you discover that you will need the help of a landscaper or designer with your project, you’ll have the framework to make decisions and communicate your desires to your contractor.
