Landscape Design with Native Plants – IN PERSON

February 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn how to incorporate native plants into your landscape during this workshop where you will work to create your own landscape design.

Attendees will learn elements and principles of design, how to do an analysis of your yard and how to start planning your outdoor space utilizing plants native to Colorado and other low water plants. Prior to attending the class attendees should review their landscape for areas of shade, sunlight, water flow, and what direction the primary building faces. Attendees will spend part of the class working on their landscape framework with the assistance of master gardeners.

The instructors for this class are Priscilla Holland and Allisa Linfield. Priscilla has been a Colorado Master Gardener volunteer for a number of years and is passionate about creating beautiful landscapes with native plants. She has designed beautiful habitats within home landscapes for families and friends and is experienced in navigating responsible landscape choices from an HOA perspective. Allisa is the horticulture program coordinator for CSU Extension in El Paso County and is a graduate student at Colorado State University researching nursery container production of native plants.
