Join Reginald Durant from Back to Natives to learn all about native plants that can provide color, beauty and the structural bones of a landscape year-round, while saving water and supplying habitat for birds and butterflies. The right foundation planting for most landscapes is a nice mix of evergreen material, with some repetition of plants for a unified look, and an overall casual, naturalistic feeling. A successful foundation planting starts with picking the right plants in the right proportion: evergreens to provide the structural bones of the landscape year-round.
Evergreen shrubs add texture and height, and seasonal color. Foundation plants should enhance a landscape, make it welcoming, and tie it to the surrounding area. Using natives as foundation plantings eliminates the need for pesticides, which harm beneficial insects and other animals, and reduces our exposure to toxic substances. Natives require less pruning and no fertilizing. A well planned native plant landscape attracts birds and butterflies.

Participants will learn why and how to select native foundation plants appropriate for their geographic region, as well as best practices for designing with locally native plants.

 

Going Native: Irrigation Modification for Native Butterfly Plants
Free Seminar at the South Coast Plaza Spring Garden Show
April 28, 3:30PM, Level 1 
The Azalea RoomJoin Reginald Durant from Back to Natives to learn all about saving water by using micro irrigation.

“We’ve found that Natives do not thrive with wasteful overhead watering,” said Durant, “They do best with micro irrigation which focuses water to the base of each plant, and can be adjusted to the needs of each plant, saving substantial amounts of water.”
Join us for a timely workshop focusing on our favorite irrigation to use with native plants to save the maximum amount of water – micro irrigation. Reginald used micro irrigation when he designed and installed  the landscape design for the first Platinum LEED home in Orange County, as well as for the first home in OC to earn the Build It Green, GreenPoint Rated designation.

Going Native: Landscaping Sustainably with Native Plants
Free Seminar at the South Coast Plaza Spring Garden Show
April 27, 3PM Level 3 The Begonia Rm
Join Reginald Durant from Back to Natives to learn all about locally native, landscape quality plants that can help conserve water, eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and provide habitat for butterflies and birds. Humans have been living alongside Southern California’s native plants for centuries. Toyon was the first Hollywood celebrity with the native Tongva people, and Beach Evening Primrose basked on sun warmed sand dunes long before the first surfer caught their first wave. The presentation will include pictures of native ecosystems and the native plants that flourish in Southern California..“50% or more of the water we use daily goes on lawns and outdoor landscaping,” said Back to Natives Executive Director Reginald Durant. “Planting natives is one of the best ways for homeowners and businesses to help solve the crisis brought on by one of California’s worst droughts, that is not over yet.”

Join us for a timely workshop focusing on our favorite plants to use to save the maximum amount of water while providing the maximum amount of habitat for birds and butterflies, and a beautiful, low maintenance landscape. Reginald designed and installed  the landscape design for the first Platinum LEED home in Orange County, as well as for the first home in OC to earn the Build It Green, GreenPoint Rated designation, and many other beautiful, locally native gardens since. Working with Lori Whalen, our volunteer Designer, Reginald has installed numerous landscapes featured in several local native plant tours and home and garden tours in select areas of Southern California.

 

 

 

Back To Natives Restoration, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity, peforms habitat restoration throughout Southern California, wth the help of hundreds of volunteers every year. Habitat restoration helps to assuage the effects of global climate change, by providing cooling plants that reduce temperatures around themselve, clean the air, clean the water, and clean the soils they are growing in. If one mature tree can reduce the temperature by up tp 40oF aound itself, just think how an entre plant community can influence temperatures, air quality, and our quality of life! Native plants help conserve water, eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and provide habitat for butterflies and birds. You too can volunteer with us https://www.backtonatives.org/volunteer/ Through native plant propagation, our volunteers help provide a stable source of true species plants, with no hybrids or cultivars, as hybrids and cultivars cannot be used in restoration, so why would we use them in landscaping? Sign up to Volunteer today!

This is Back to Natives’ ninth year participating in the Spring Garden Show at South Coast Plaza. The focus this year will be on native foundation plants that provide habitat for birds and butterflies while they enhance a landscape’s aesthetic and are attractive year round, and how you too can become involved growing these plants, or perform habitat restoration with Back to Natives. Most plants from our presentations will be available for sale at the Back to Natives Nursery at Santiago Park in Santa Ana. More info at www.backtonatives.org/nursery Plant sales raise funds for Back to Natives’ environmental education and habitat restoration programs.

Back To Natives Restoration, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit public charity, will provide four free seminars on locally native plants at the 29th Annual Southern California Spring Garden Show at South Coast Plaza April 27 and April 28, 2018. Back to Natives’ talks will occur in Seminar Rooms, on Levels 1 & 3 of the Crate and Barrel / Macy’s Home Store Wing at South Coast Plaza 3333 Bear Street Costa Mesa, CA 92626. The show is the largest garden event in Southern California offering complimentary admission and free educational seminars. Native plants help conserve water, eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and provide habitat for butterflies and birds. Consulting services and plant sales at the Back to Natives Nursery at Santiago Park, help raise funds for Back to Natives’ environmental education and habitat restoration programs.
