Dr. Chris Cooper – Is Your Yard a Smart Yard? Experience the full potential of your yard. Use these nine foundational principles to create a healthy living space for you and your family to enjoy.
Chris Cosby – Know Where You Grow: A Primer for Using Native Plants in Mid-south Landscapes.
Getting to know our local habitats and the plant communities that call them home is a fantastic way to increase your success with native plants. Learn to create functional, ecologically responsible, beautiful gardens by understanding which natural system most closely matches your garden’s conditions and choosing plants that are found in similar sites.
Carol Reese -Revise, Edit, Transform: Embracing Change in the Landscape Landscapes don’t freeze at some imagined perfection, nor should they. Just as a silk flower arrangement grows tiresome so would a static landscape. As your personal style and interests evolve over your lifetime, a changing landscape is desirable and of course inevitable.
