Description

These workshops will give you an introduction to designing beautiful, functional, and healthy yards that are rain smart and beneficial to nature and people alike. These workshops will focus on rain smart techniques and the best places to integrate them into your outdoor space, including:

  • rain gardens
  • naturalized landscaping
  • infiltration galleries
  • rainwater harvesting
  • permeable pavement
  • other aspects of healthy yards, such as attracting bees and butterflies

WORKSHOP # 1: HEALTHY YARDS 101 | IDEA SPARK

  • Presentation: 7:00 p.m.
  • Design Exercise: 7:20 – 9:00 p.m.

We will printout an aerial map of your property in advance. After a brief overview, you will be guided through the process of analyzing your property to determine what healthy yard features would work best for your space and lifestyle. We will sketch out your ideas to give you a sense of the size and scope of your project(s).

You will leave the workshop with a basic plan for your yard and additional resources to help implement your healthy yard project. The design sketch can help to facilitate discussion with a contractor or form the basis of the plan to do it yourself. If you want help developing a more detailed plan, register for the next workshop in the series Healthy Yards: Designing Your Garden.
