Sustainable Landscapes: How far am I willing to go?

Description

A sustainable landscape design supports the healthy growth of trees, plants and grasses while promoting a balance with nature. Design and maintain your landscape to thrive as you do your part to help protect the ecosystem. In this class, participants will learn how to choose the right plants for the right places and perform the best sustainable maintenance practices to minimize inefficiencies, decrease the need for excess water and added chemicals to the landscape.

After this class, students will be able to:

  • Explain and apply the concept of “Right Plant/Right Place” and describe its impact on sustainability.
  • Describe the impact of making sustainable decisions regarding planning and maintaining the landscape.
  • Return to their own landscapes and immediately redesign areas where participants can make an impact on their environments.
