Webinar: The Liberated Landscape: Letting Nature Do the Work

September 25 @ 4:00 pm EDT - 5:00 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,952 tickets left

Over thousands of years plants have evolved to reproduce and proliferate on their own, yet we often go to great effort and expense to carefully place every plant in our designed landscapes. How can we capitalize on the reproductive abilities of plants and actively encourage planted as well as existing species to colonize our landscapes? In this lecture, well-known landscape designer Larry Weaner will discuss principles and protocols for creating dynamic, ecologically rich landscapes where nature does much of the…

Webinar: Artful Rainwater Design – Stormwater Designs that Enhance Aesthetics

October 9 @ 12:30 pm EDT - 1:30 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,984 tickets left

The concept of Artful Rainwater Design, a term coined by Dr. Echols and Ms. Pennypacker, is based on the premise that stormwater management can be designed such that new site amenities are created. These amenities result in greater user satisfaction and perceived value. Looking at rainwater-focused projects nationwide, the presenters will discuss how these designs transformed the treatment of stormwater into attractive landscapes with educational and recreational components.  They will look at specific examples of built designs, explain the principles…

Webinar: Landscape Options – Focusing on Great Underused Plants

October 19 @ 7:00 pm EDT - 8:00 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,986 tickets left

So many plants - so little space... The options are endless and though some plants have very desirable traits and applications yet, they are rarely used. Darryl Newman from Planters Choice will discuss native cultivars and non-invasive exotic plants that can be used to meet challenging conditions when designing a more formal landscape. He will focus on plants that have great potential but are underused and could, consequently, be phased out of production by suppliers. Mr. Newman will also provide tips…

Webinar: Engineered Soils for Permeable Pathways

November 8 @ 12:30 pm EDT - 1:30 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,997 tickets left

Stabilized stonedust / Stabilized decomposed granite – The Natural Choice for permeable ADA-complaint pathways Stabilized stonedust (also called stabilized decomposed granite) is a permeable paving option that is seeing increased use in recent years. This material is a blend of fine crushed aggregate (3/8” minus) and a water-activated, psyllium based binder. This webinar will explain how this paving material is made, provide pathway design and construction recommendations, best practices for successful performance, and examine some case studies. Tony Will has more…

Groundcovers – Ecological Solutions in Place of Mulch

November 13 @ 4:00 pm EDT - 5:00 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,983 tickets left

The ecological garden is a richly layered plant community. At the base of the plant layer we find the herbaceous groundcovers plants that help to reduce garden maintenance. Growing in popularity, groundcover plants add beauty from leaf shapes, textures, and colors. As a bonus, they add valuable ecosystem services not offered by mulch alone – including the challenging areas such as the base of trees. Unlike the monotony of mulch, groundcovers offer seasonal interest in both flowers and foliage and…

Webinar: Invasive Plant Control Without Chemicals

December 12 @ 4:00 pm EDT - 5:00 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,998 tickets left

Persistent, Relentless, Tenacious…such are the words we deploy to describe our nemesis weeds and invasive species. Invasive plant species colonize degraded landscapes and overtake native plants robbing the area of critical ecosystem services. These exotic plants spread rampantly when they are free of natural checks and balances found in their native range.  A handful of high-impact, aggressive non-natives affect soil health, biodiversity, and even land access. Who wants to hack their way through a tangle of unyielding multi-flora rose, common buckthorn, and…

Webinar: Transitioning to Ecological Landscape Practices – Toxin-Free Landscapes

January 17, 2018 @ 4:00 pm EDT - 5:00 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,996 tickets left

The reasons to remove toxic chemicals from our landscapes are many and many homeowners are seeking landscape professionals who can deliver healthier landscape options.

How do landscape professionals educate, manage expectations, and keep a client’s trust during the transition? Edwina von Gal from Perfect Earth Project will…

Webinar: Invasive Plants: What Are They? And What Can Be Done?

January 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm EDT - 8:00 pm EDT
Free 997 tickets left

What are invasive plant species and what harm do they do to an ecosystem? Invasive plant species are a threat to natural areas throughout the country. No habitat or region is immune from the threat of invasive species. They displace native plants, eliminate native food and cover for wildlife, and threaten rare plant and animal species. Nearly all landscapes, both private gardens and public spaces have become the unwelcome home to many invasives. Bruce Wenning, is an invasive plant specialist…

Webinar: Landscape Maintenance Practices for Native Bees

February 1, 2018 @ 4:00 pm EDT - 5:00 pm EDT
Free - $10 1,998 tickets left

Pollinators (including honey bees, native bees, birds, bats, butterflies, and other species) are essential to healthy ecosystems. Pollinators support the success and vigor of flowering plants, making ecosystems stronger, more resilient, and enhancing the environment for human populations. Decades of stressors (including the loss, degradation, and fragmentation of habitat, reduction in the number and quality of food sources, reduction in the availability of sites for breeding, nesting, and roosting, and improper use of pesticides and herbicides) have severely and adversely…
