What you'll learn in this landscape design class:

Join renowned plantsman Roy Diblik as he discusses the merits of living mulch. This style of planting utilizes all living components rather than wood chips or inorganic materials. By using a living layer, you increase the depth and health of root systems, enhance the moisture level in the soil, and build beneficial organic matter for the plant communities in the landscape.
