Learn how to transform your yard with native gardens, raingardens, shoreline plantings, and turf alternatives that add beauty, provide habitat, and help to protect lakes, streams and wetlands.
During the workshop, our landscaping experts will share photos from local projects to inspire your creativity, and will help you practice sketching a landscape plan for your yard with tracing paper and an aerial photo. In addition, you’ll learn about resources to help you get started, including:
Incentive grants for clean water planting projects
Free site visits
Garden designs and plant lists
Conservation plans for larger properties
