Landscape for Life™, developed by the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, is based on the principles of the Sustainable Sites Initiative™. The Garden is pleased to present this series of classes to help homeowners become better stewards of the land, by implementing sustainable practices that can restore and protect the environment for future generations.
Landscape for Life™ is composed of five lessons that explore the roles of the five universal elements of residential landscapes: water, soils, plants, plant practices and materials. Participants will each be asked to create a base map of their own property. In a practical application, they will use the base maps to assess their sites and then learn how to implement sustainable practices by incorporating the five elements in their own landscapes. The classes are designed to engage the student and examine each topic through a combination of presentations, class discussions, exercises and field trips.
