On May 13th I was pleased to speak at the Larchmont Village Neighborhood Association on sustainable (“Green”) landscape design and the use of drought-tolerant, Mediterranean and native California species in designing a beautiful yet sustainable landscape. There were approximately 75 people in the audience and a number had questions about plant selection and how to better use water.
I suspected these topics might generate a lot of interest, so I prepared two handouts to provide more information than I could possibly communicate in the 15 minutes I had to speak. I also included a landscaping design check list, which is very helpful if you’re considering doing any work.
I thought it would be a good idea to make these handouts available to anyone who stopped by, so here are their links.
