(1 CEU APLD; 1 CEU LEED) – Friday March 30th – 1:30 – 2:30 PM
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will focus on all aspects of native plant landscaping including design, installation, establishment, and long term care. We will make special emphasis on resource conservation, water use, reduced run-off, limited use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and reduced green waste. We will discuss benefits to wildlife, especially birds and native beneficial pollinators, as well as the authentic beauty of the naturalistic garden. We will touch on how to integrate these design themes and horticultural techniques into existing landscapes in need of retrofit, as well as brand new sites. A descriptive plant list will be made available. 1.0 hours
I’m excited to be bringing the “good news” of natives to Landscape Architects and LEED Professionals at the LA EXPO, and very pleased to be speaking with Mike Evans. Mike is one of the great speakers on why natives matter.
