Native plant replacements for exotic invasives

annual symposium 2022 1 annual symposium 2022 2

Our Educational Symposium was informative and fun! Award-winning Landscape Architect and owner of Landserve, LLC, John Mariani, discussed Native Plant Replacements for Exotic Invasives. We learned about using indigenous plants in an aesthetically pleasing yet functional design and how to highlight plants that are the best substitutes for non-natives. Learn more about John's ideas at Landscapes for Life!
