This three hour interactive workshop will cover fundamentals for creating residential landscapes with a focus on native plants. Discussion will include strategies for creating landscapes that are maintainable for the homeowner, as well as beneficial for insects, birds, and other wildlife.
Dale is the owner of Gardener by Nature, which offers customized gardening services emphasizing native plants and sustainable landscape practices. Dale has a certificate in Native Plant Studies from the NC Botanical Garden and more than 13 years experience creating and maintaining residential gardens. “When designing, I believe it’s very important to consider not only a site’s physical characteristics, but also the existing and surrounding plant and animal communities. For me, a garden is truly alive when it becomes a healthy, functioning ecosystem. I especially enjoy working with individuals and families who want to reconnect with nature and feel strongly that engaging children with the natural world is important both for their own development and the future of our planet.”Read More!
