SITE PREPARATION FOR LANDSCAPE TRANSFORMATION
with landscape designer and author Kathy Connelly.
Are you thinking about reducing a lawn, eliminating a veggie garden, cleaning up a weedy patch, or turning a perennial bed into a flowering meadow? Good site preparation is critical. Unfortunately, it is a little understood step, often given short shrift in the drive to transform an old landscape into something new.
In this one-hour talk, we’ll look at ways to analyze past land uses, anticipate how that will affect future land covers, compare weed removal methods (with emphasis on non-chemical methods), look at realistic timelines for site transformations, and consider what it takes to thoroughly prepare a site. Helpful handout is included. – Kathy Connelly
