During this unique educational experience, you will learn how to design, plant, and manage a landscape that is beautiful, low maintenance, drought tolerant, and the ultimate in environmental responsibility. No previous plant, design, or management knowledge is needed.

Presented in a very time- and travel-efficient format, this 2.5 day course will take place in Dallas the weekend of October 3, 4 & 5, 2014, and consist of an in-depth classroom program, outdoor laboratory session, field trip to tour Earth-Kind plant trials, plus a personalized extended (1.5 hour) landscape design consultation to be conducted a few weeks later.

Dr. Steve George, Professor and Extension Landscape Specialist with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and creator of the Earth-Kind® Environmental Landscape Management System, is the lead instructor and will personally conduct all of the design consultations.

When the course is complete, you will have been given a wealth of landscape knowledge and will leave with a labeled working landscape plan for the major landscape area of your choice.
