This 3-part series, presented by Mt. Lebanon native Claire Schuchman, provides a comprehensive overview of the process of creating a sustainable landscape design using the principles of organic gardening. Many Sustainable gardening concepts will be discussed, such as “right plant/right place,” how to shade out weeds with ground covers, the use of hardy native plants and tips for installing rain gardens and rain barrels.
Whether you’re a new gardener needing to start from the beginning or a seasoned “pro” with an eye for design who wants to update your current landscape, this series will help you make good decisions about how best to move forward with your own gardening project.
Claire Schuchman is a lifelong gardener who believes beautiful gardens can change our lives. She is a Phipps Master Gardener, a frequent contributor to Mt Lebanon Magazine and a local landscape designer. Her garden has been featured on past Mt. Lebanon Public Library Annual Garden Tour and the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden’s Open Gardens Tour.
