Native Foundation Plants Seminar

at the Long Beach Landscape Expo

October 4, 2017 10AM – 11:30AM ♦ Long Beach Convention Center

Join Reginald Durant from Back to Natives to learn all about some great native foundation plants that are attractive year round. 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 even 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. Learn more HERE.
