Landscape for Life Series

We'll show you how to work in cooperation with nature, no matter where you are - on a suburban lot, a 20-acre farm or the common area of your condominium.  Home gardens can improve the quality of your neighborhood and its environmental health.  By working with nature, you'll save time, energy, money, and most important for Texans - water.  This hands-on, 10-hour, five-class series covers the role of successful soil practices, water capture and conservation, as well as plant material selection in a sustainable, eco-friendly garden design.
