Harness nature's power to create a healthy, beautiful home landscape...
Landscape for Life shows you how to work with nature in your garden, no matter where you live, whether you garden on a city or suburban lot, a 20-acre farm, or the common area of your condominium. Conventional gardens often work against nature. They can damage the environment's ability to clean air and water, reduce flooding, combat climate change, and provide all the other natural benefits that support life on earth--including us. The good news is that even one home garden can begin to repair the web of life. It's possible to create a great-looking garden that's healthier for you, your family, your pets, and the environment--and that saves you time and money.
The Landscape for Life 5-week educational series instructs the home gardener on how to create and maintain healthy and beautiful landscapes that benefit their family and surrounding community. During these five weeks, you will learn about:
- Sustainability as it applies to the home garden
- Healthy soils
- Building materials
- Landscape design
Landscape for Life educational series is a wonderful learning opportunity for...
- Neighborhood associations
- Garden clubs
- Civic organizations
- or any group of interested home gardeners
Landscape For Life is based on the principles of the Sustainable Sites Initiative™ program (SITES™), the nation’s first rating system for sustainable landscapes. SITES™ is an interdisciplinary effort led by the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at The University of Texas at Austin, and the United States Botanic Garden in conjunction with a diverse group of stakeholder organizations.
