This introductory workshop introduces the core concepts of naturescaping: the practice of designing your landscape to reduce water use and decrease stormwater runoff while saving you time, money and energy. The class also explores:
- pollution prevention through the reduction/elimination of chemical use
- how native plants naturally resist pests and tolerate drought conditions while attracting native birds, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators to your garden
- basic site planning principals, and many other great natural gardening and design tips
Even if you use a contractor, you'll have the framework to make decisions and effectively communicate the vision you have for your yard. Class will visit a nearby naturescaped project to see design principles in action. You'll receive a comprehensive workbook to help you get started.
