Shrinking the Lawn: Exploring eco friendly alternatives to sod

Webinar

Wednesday 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Join us for the second episode of the LiveGreen@Home workshop series, Shrinking the Lawn, a free webinar with Lorraine Johnson, native plant expert and author of numerous native plant gardening books.

Tired of all the maintenance your lawn requires? Interested in increasing the ecological value of your yard for pollinators and other wildlife? This webinar will explore the benefits of reducing lawn area, and instead planting low-maintenance alternative groundcovers, native plants, shrubs and trees. Whatever your conditions–sun, shade or somewhere in between–you’ll learn practical techniques, such as sod removal and replacement, for creating beautiful landscapes that conserve water, build the soil, and clean the air. Join author Lorraine Johnson in welcoming wildlife to the habitats we call home.
