This workshop will give you an introduction to designing beautiful, functional, and healthy yards that are rain smart and beneficial to nature and people alike.

The workshop will focus on rain smart techniques and the best places to integrate them into your outdoor space, including:

rain gardens
naturalized landscaping
infiltration galleries
rainwater harvesting
permeable pavement
other aspects of healthy yards, such as attracting bees and butterflies

We will print out an aerial map of your property in advance. After a brief overview, you will be guided through the process of analyzing your property to determine what healthy yard features would work best for your space and lifestyle. We will sketch out your ideas to give you a sense of the size and scope of your project(s). You will leave the workshop with a basic plan for your yard and additional resources to help implement your healthy yard project. The design sketch can help to facilitate discussion with a contractor or form the basis of the plan to do it yourself. If you want help developing a more detailed plan, register for the next workshop in the series Healthy Yards: Designing Your Garden.
