Turning Problem Spaces into Featured Places
Tuesday, October 10, 2017 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Tired of high maintenance lawns? A beautiful lawn can be an appealing part of your home landscape, but sometimes turf-grass doesn’t perform as well as you would like. A variety of ground covers and plants can be used to replace these areas.
Ground covers are low-growing plants used within a landscape. Selecting which types of plants are appropriate for you depends on a variety of factors (e.g., location within your yard, soil conditions, etc.).
This workshop will cover how to choose plants and ground covers that are appealing to the eyes and take little effort.
