A “HOW TO” AND “WHY” GUIDE FOR THE HOMEOWNER WITH LISA TESSIER.
This is a webinar recording presented by the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society on Friday, April 15, 2022. Lisa Tessier, Landscape Architect joins us for a special program on Landscaping with Native Plants.
During this program, we explore the process and numerous benefits of designing home landscapes with native plants. Key planning steps for ensuring a successful design are discussed–from a careful site analysis to purchasing considerations. Along the way, favorite species for our region are shared.
Please view the presentation with one piece of your garden in mind that you would like to work on in the future.
