There is no better way to learn how to remove turf and build soil than by doing it! During this hands on workshop, held in a demonstration garden, we contour for rainwater capture, and remove turf/build soil through proper sheet mulching.

site evaluation

Getting started is often the hardest part of the project.  This hands on workshop, held at a demonstration property, takes participants through the step-by-step process of laying out a site plan and gathering the necessary information for developing a landscape plan or working with a professional.

planting & irrigation

The ground is contoured. The turf is removed, and sheet mulching is building healthy living soil.  Now we return to our demonstration site to read a landscape plan, select plants from virtual nursery, properly space and plant them. Participants finish off the class by reviewing and installing a point source drip irrigation system.

homeowner land management

There is no such thing as a zero maintenance garden. We return to our demonstration site a few months after completion of planting and irrigation to learn the proper techniques for managing the irrigation, pruning and staking plants, and keeping the rainwater capture system in top form.
