We'll explore the benefits of transitioning away from lawn-dominant landscapes, how to select native plants then prep and design the space, and finally touch on management and working with HOAs or local weed ordinances. This lecture will be packed with helpful information and resources, plus dozens of inspiring images.

He is the author of Prairie Up: An Introduction to Natural Garden Design, as well as A New Garden Ethic: Cultivating Defiant Compassion for an Uncertain Future. Benjamin's work has been featured in Dwell, Fine Gardening, Horticulture, Midwest Living, and the Wall Street Journal.
