A Different Sea of Green – A Hands-On Workshop
You are cordially invited to attend a workshop conducted by Puck Erickson, noted landscape architect and founding partner of Arcadia Studio. The workshop will cover all aspects of converting a water-thirsty landscape to a water conserving design that any homeowner can establish. Learn about drought tolerant grasses, native and Mediterranean plant combinations, proper sprinkler systems for maximum water savings, and so much more.
This workshop will utilize a hands-on approach to renovating your own garden so that you can lose excessive lawn and thirsty plantings, and replace them with new, inviting garden spaces. Whether the appeal is environmental stewardship or the family pocketbook, this fresh look at your landscape will engage your senses and inspire new directions.The event will be both educational and fun, and includes a delicious catered lunch and refreshments .W.E.
