What's going on out there?
Some people are meadow-scaping, installing all-native plantings, and switching to low-mow lawns. Pollinator patches are popping up in community and private spaces across the country.
Yet others look at naturalized landscapes and see unkempt plants that are too tall. Towns and homeowner associations try to enforce blight ordinances against native plantings. Lawns are still the norm and the lawn care industry continues to thrive.
In the meantime, robots and drones are taking on the problems of invasive plants, insect invasions, and landscape maintenance. Battery-powered equipment is gaining space in garages and sheds. New, safer products are tackling old problems such as grub control.
Join this event for a lively "flyover" of a changing landscape, and what these changes mean for gardeners and landscapers.
Location: South Woodstock Baptist Church, 23 Roseland Park Road, Woodstock, CT. Open to the public. Presentation at 7:00pm.
