Sustainable landscaping has many benefits for both the environment and your business. The best landscape designs are ones that strive to be responsive to local environmental conditions. Sustainable landscape practices seek to elevate this responsiveness by choosing landscape options that are regenerative, restorative, and progressive in developing the ecological health of our communities.
Landscape and green industry professionals are invited to attend this exceptional all-day conference held in partnership with the NC Composting Council. Come learn how to push your business towards more environmentally-friendly practices as leading industry players provide keynote talks on topics such as establishing soil health, maintaining turfgrass sustainably, and choosing low-impact plants.
