Choosing Native Plants

The past decade has seen massive changes in the landscape industry. The days of landscapes dedicated to beauty alone are passing. Customers are demanding ecologically sensitive landscapes; they want reduced lawn, reduced maintenance, and greater wildlife value. In other words, they want native plants. But not all natives make good landscape choices; some are overly fussy about their habitat needs, while others will take over small spaces, and plenty more simply don’t resonate with all people. Join us for a discussion about how to work native plants into any landscape. From tried-and-true species to solution plants for hard-to-fill spots, we will discuss how to landscape with native plants successfully.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
