Session Description

No one calls a landscaper looking for some sort of ‘Palace of Versailles’! The first request is usually ‘low maintenance’. The best and most visually appealing way to reduce work is with mulches and groundcovers. We’ll discuss a variety of both, their pros and cons and how to design with them. We’ll also touch on natives and biodiversity enhancement, which are becoming major interests. The soil microbiome will also be touched on.
