2014 Native Plant Week, Replace Your Lawn, and Design Help for Your Garden
The third week of April (12-20) is California Native Plant Week! We’re celebrating by hosting our Replace Your Lawn (RYL) Workshops to inspire individuals who want to get rid of that expensive water-guzzling, care-intensive lawn, and make way for a gorgeous native garden. We are presenting our Replace Your Lawn (RYL) workshop series in a special three-part installment about the basics of converting your lawn into a beautiful, carefree, sustainable habitat. Oh yeah, did we mention water savings as a big part of the deal?
Don't forget to go on a garden tour this spring, and, So Cal Residents, check out these lawn replacement rebates!
We’re preparing a unique place to receive inspiration for this particular RYL series with the Grand Opening of our new Butterfly Garden! We’re planting out recent favorites that have proven to be tried and true California native plants for Southern California gardens. Our new planting will be grouped according to common design criteria many homeowners are looking for: groundcover replacements for lawn, slope plantings, sunny dry areas of the garden and more. Get ideas about how to group your plants together in your project by having a look at techniques we have seen work time and again. Then in May we bring you Designers each week who will instruct about how to implement strong design principles in your native garden, join us!
