Ecologically sound landscapes require less maintenance, fewer inputs, and are adapted to local environmental conditions. Learn how to measure, inventory, and analyze a site; then make a conceptual design and planting plan using the "right plant, right place" approach. Broaden your design perspective, increase biodiversity in the landscape with native plants, decrease space dedicated to lawn, and create habitats that benefit insects, birds, and other fauna.
