Incorporating Native Plants in Urban and Suburban Landscapes
April 21, 2021
In the face of challenges posed by climate change, habitat loss, and wildlife decline, how we design and manage our landscapes is changing rapidly. This presentation will present practical tools and strategies for integrating ecologically vibrant plants into established landscapes. Together, we’ll demystify essential landscape design elements for homeowners and explore regenerative plant combinations suited for urban and suburban settings.
