Designing with Water Wise Natives

Instructor: Billy Goodnick
California's native plants offer nearly limitless uses in your residential garden, from creating wildlife-attracting, naturalistic landscapes to cottage, contemporary or traditional style spaces.
This class takes students through the steps professional designers use to assure that the finished garden is beautiful, useful and sustainable: site planning to enhance outdoor living, selecting plants based on what they "do" in the garden as well as how to create beautiful, year-round interest. Learn the "core of four" step-by-step plant selection technique to sort through the sometimes overwhelming choices available at the spring plant sale and bring home plants that will serve you for years to come. The class ends with a tour of some of the Garden's most beautiful beds to bring the classroom concepts life. There will be a book signing of his garden design book, "Yards: Turn Any Outdoor Space Into the Garden of Your Dreams", St. Lynn's Press, 2013
