New Events: 2019 Designer Workshops

NDAL is coordinating a series of two-day designer workshops in March-April of 2019!

Natural Design: An Intensive Two-Day Workshop

Demand for high performing, ecology-based landscapes is increasing faster than the availability of the specialized knowledge needed to achieve them. This intensive, interactive, two-day workshop will provide concrete, real world guidance for designing and documenting all phases of native landscape development.

Attendees will receive an extensive manual that documents all aspects of the program, including plant selection criteria, plant recommendations, ecological process-based management specifications, and guidance for maximizing the aesthetic and experiential appeal these landscapes can provide.
