By removing your lawn, you can create a biodiverse landscape that is beautiful and easy to manage while using less water. In this talk you’ll learn about design considerations, choices of layout, and using hardy native plants. We’ll also discuss irrigation -- including how much water your landscape would need in the first year versus when it’s more established in the second year. Our speaker, Jennifer Doniach, is a garden designer specializing in native planting, and has been a Master Gardener volunteer since 2017.
