Landscaping With Native Plants
Sunday March 26, 2017
1:30 PM until 3:30 PM
Did you know that native plants - once established - do not require the use of chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides to maintain their beauty? Or that they don’t require extra watering? Did you know that our native pollinators and birds generally prefer native plants for nectaring and seed?
Citizens for Lexington Conservation and the Lexington Field and Garden Club will be hosting the movie Urban and Suburban Meadows, which explains and illustrates the virtues and practicalities of replacing a conventional lawn with meadow landscaping. In the movie, Catherine Zimmerman, an award winning photography director and a certified horticulturist and landscape designer, weaves her personal journey of changing her own landscaping choices into a guide that demonstrates both the need to change current, detrimental landscaping practices and the practical know-how and resources to accomplish that change. Following the video, local experts with experience in creating natural backyard habitats will answer questions from the audience based on their own experience.
The event will be held on Sunday, March 26, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm in the large lecture room at Cary Memorial Library. Please join us for this video and panel discussion.
