Nick Nelson, USBG Landscape Architect
Put into practice the techniques of sustainable design, without compromising aesthetics! Nick will show you how, as he provides tricks of the trade like grouping plants that have similar requirements but are complementary, in addition to broader topics, like the visualization and creation of dynamic spaces.
The USBG, in partnership with the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, has developed Landscape for Life, a program for home owners on sustainable gardening and based on the principles behind the Sustainable Sites Initiative. This Landscape for Life series serves to highlight how home gardeners can incorporate sustainability into their personal landscapes. These brown bag lectures can be done individually or as a series.
