Beyond Installation: Designing with Maintenance in Mind

Exhibit Hall B
Landscapes are dynamic, continually evolving and changing. Successful landscape design should always address long-term maintenance requirements associated with the evolving landscape. This program will address three “Right Plant, Right Place” strategies to incorporate long-term maintenance beyond landscape installation and establishment. Concluding the program, attendees will be better able to use strategies for native plant selection, design and maintenance that accommodate an evolving landscape.
