DESIGNER FORUM SERIES: Maintenance Specifications & The Watershed Approach
Tue, November 14, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM PST
APLD Bay Area DESIGNER FORUM SERIES:
Maintenance Specifications & The Watershed Approach
A members-only round-table discussion about the special considerations and challenges with specifying a maintenance plan for a Watershed Approach landscape, including:
- Maintaining rainwater capture systems: basins, swales and berms, clean gutters and rain barrels.
- Primary focus on soil health: annual mulch reapplication, leaving leaves in place, compost teas.
- Proper and selective pruning only when necessary to reduce green waste.
- Getting clients and gardeners to buy into to specific practices: chop and drop, grass-cycling, no-blowing, cycle and soak programming, etc.
- Regular monitoring and weaning away from irrigation after establishment.
