Course Description:
Maintaining public and private landscapes using resource-efficient practices effectively protects the environment, improves the health of the plantings, and is cost-effective. Irrigating based on the water requirements of plants; improving poor quality soil with soil amendments; preventing and reducing soil compaction; mulching landscape plantings; and, implementing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices favoring prevention will be discussed with real-world examples provided.
