Plant Your Ideas - Landscape Design Workshop

February 2, 2017

Redesigning your front yard is an exciting, yet daunting project. The free “Plant Your Ideas” workshop is designed to give homeowners the tools and information they need to get started! Join us on March 4th from 10am-12pm in the Leake Room at the Woodland Public Library, 250 First Street.

The workshop will start with a presentation on basic landscape design principles and considerations homeowners should take before beginning their projects. Following this, attendees will create custom landscape designs for their front yards using aerial photos and “drag & drop” shapes representing plant types. Landscape professionals and volunteers from the UCCE Master Gardeners of Yolo County will be present to answer questions and give advice.

For families with children 5 and up, there will be kids crafts and story time in the children’s department of the library upstairs.

Registration is limited to 25 participants. Preference will be given to Woodland residents. Please register at www.cityofwoodland.org/waterconservation.

This workshop is hosted by the City of Woodland, Environmental Services and the Yolo County Resource Conservation District.
