Create and Care for Your Native Garden
Now that you have killed your lawn, and you are working on your design, what are you supposed to do? Mike Evans will share from our booklet, “Creating and Caring for your Native Garden.” Bringing his 35+ years of experience with these plants, as well as just as many years of site-prep, initial irrigation techniques and working with tricky landscape situations. He will teach you how to create a thriving and enjoyable native garden. As Mike has mentioned for years and years, “Maintenance is what you do for your car, you CARE for your plants!”

How to Design a Natural Garden
Every garden should be a representation of nature, designed, built and cared for in context. Even an ultra-modern, graphic, bold, stylistic garden, in context, represents nature for that place. In this design workshop with Tree of Life’s Mike Evans, we will discuss the role played by unusual and unique plant varieties and other natural accents, when used as focal or keystone specimens. Emphasis will be on how to design a natural garden. (Event changed from Jodie Cooks MAG’s talk, we are sorry for the inconvenience.)
