Thursday, June 5th ǀ 8:00 am – 4:00 pmJoin North Creek’s very own Claudia West & Kevin Staso to kick off the Native Plants in the Landscape Conference on Thursday, June 5th for Workshop 1: Vegetated Solutions for Functional and Aesthetic Rain Gardens. In this daylong event, participants will learn why a majority of rain garden designs fail to meet our expectations and how to turn your next project into a success. The purpose of this advanced and professional workshop will be to properly design within a successful plant community that will provide maximum function and aesthetic appeal. Attendees will learn how to select, properly combine and install native plants based on a mixed planting approach — transforming beliefs, embracing new methodologies and dispelling currently “accepted” rain garden design.
