Harness nature’s power to create a healthy, beautiful home landscape. Landscape For Life shows you how to work with nature in your garden, no matter where you live, whether you garden on a city or suburban lot, a 20–acre farm, or the common area of your condominium. Conventional gardens often work against nature. They can damage the environment's ability to clean air and water, reduce flooding, combat climate change, and provide all the other natural benefits that support life on earth-including us. The good news is that even one home garden can begin to repair the web of life. It's possible to create a great–looking garden that's healthier for you, your family, your pets, and the environment-and that saves you time and money. Topics will include successful soil, water, plant and materials practices with emphasis on native plants.
Also, consider registering for a valuable and subsequent course, Home Landscape Design Workshop, scheduled to begin April 18.
