Site Preparation for Landscape Transformation

Saturday, September 30, 2023 -
1:00pm to 3:30pm

Are you ready to abandon an old landscape and start a pollinator garden, bird hedge, or meadow filled with native plants? Site preparation is critical to success, but it is often overlooked in the quest for a finished appearance. This seminar is a primer on preparing a site for change. We cover planning, timelines, soil assessment, site selection, plant selection, online sources of site information, equipment, and products. 

The seminar is accompanied by an extensive resource document. Register for Site Preparation here. 

The class is followed the next day, Sunday, October 1, by Meadows 1-2-3, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This segment addresses how to develop and maintain native plant meadows and meadow-gardens.  

Site Preparation is sponsored by Native Plant Trust and Polly HIll Arboretum. Event will take place at Polly Hill Arboretum, West Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard.
