To reserve this seminar,
Join Reginald Durant from Back to Natives to learn all about landscaping with native plants. Landscaping with natives conserves water – an increasingly scarce natural resource – and saves money. Using natives eliminates the need for pesticides, which harm beneficial insects and other animals, and reduces our exposure to toxic substances. Natives also require less mowing, pruning and fertilizing. A well planned native plant landscape even attracts birds and butterflies. See examples of beautiful landscape quality native plants that can substitute for traditional landscape plants.
