Sustainable Landscape Design Part I:
Putting Principles into Practice

January 27 @ 10:00 am 11:30 pm EST

Sustainable landscape design builds on the unique conditions of your yard to create a healthier and more ecologically friendly outdoor space. Join Kirsten Conrad, Extension Agent for Arlington County and City of Alexandria, to learn basic design principles and techniques used to create harmonious, functional, and pleasing landscapes. These two classes build on each other and participants are encouraged to attend both of them. Part II will focus on problem solving. 

Attendees are invited to submit photos, some of which may be selected to discuss particular design challenges. Photos may be sent by email to by Monday, January 23 and must include name, contact info, photo of a problem area, and information about the problem along with your question.  Those sending photos must also register separately for the class.

Please proofread your email address when registering!

If you can’t join us for a live online presentation, video recordings of the sessions are posted to the Master Gardener Virtual Classroom.

After you RSVP,

  • You will receive an immediate email confirmation.
