KSTP recently did a live report on our Irrigation-Free Landscape project:
The Irrigation-Free Landscaping Workshop on July 28th went great! The weather was perfect for 20 workshop attendees to come learn more about the concept and check out the Irrigation-Free Landscaping pilot project. If you missed it, check out the below pictures and take a look at the project page on our website. Most of the information presented at the workshop is available on the page!
Prepare for Saturday’s Irrigation-Free Landscape Workshop by checking out this presentation by PRAIRIEFORM, which explains the basic concepts behind Irrigation-Free Landscaping:
Hope to see you at the workshop on Saturday!
Irrigation-Free Landscaping Workshop
Saturday, July 28th
NE corner of 29th Street & 42nd Ave
RSVP appreciated by not required: firstname.lastname@example.org
More details here.
On Saturday, July 28th from 11:00am to 12 noon, landscape design firm PRAIRIEFORM will host a workshop on irrigation-free landscaping. Irrigation-free landscape merges a formal, front-yard-friendly landscape aesthetic with drought-tolerant planting techniques and a subsequent “drought training” for the plants, to create a landscape that ultimately does not require supplemental watering. The irrigation-free landscape is wildlife-friendly but formal enough to fit comfortably within a front-yard setting, an aesthetic middle ground between a full-on prairie restoration and a conventional landscape of turf and a few evergreen shrubs.
The workshop will be held in a yard at the corner of 29th St & 42nd Ave, which is the location of an Irrigation-Free Landscaping Pilot Project funded in part by the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization and LCC’s Environment Committee. The workshop will be a fun, low-key opportunity to learn more about irrigation-free landscaping from an expert and too see an example in person. RSVP (appreciated but not required) to Spencer: email@example.com or 612-722-4529 ext. 5.
