Principles of Sustainable Landscaping

Saturday, May 7 at 9:00am to 5:00pm

Hayden Conference Center

Join Rick Huffman, landscape architect, and founder and past president of the South Carolina Plant Society, to learn how native plants are the key to developing a sustainable landscape, and an important way to conserve nature resources. A sustainable landscape is in balance with the local climate, soil and plants and wildlife. Native plants enable you to potentially minimize the resource inputs into your garden, such as fertilizer, pesticides, gasoline, time and water. In this class we put it all together: planning and design, site and plant selection, soil conditions, irrigation and water efficiency, and maintenance. Prerequisite: Basic Botany.

The 3/19/16 class is full, but a waiting list is available. See the 5/7/16 offering at check-out or contact Sue Watts for more information.
