Landscapes utilizing native plants don't necessary need to be randomly planted, with an appearance of being "wild and weedy". Appropriate selection, based on a set of selection criteria, and an understanding of some basic landscape design principals can create a landscape to be envied by your neighbors. Bill will provide an illustrated presentation highlighting 5 important plant selection criteria and examples associated with 7 landscape design considerations for creating both attractive and nature-beneficial native landscapes to keep nature near!
