A wall-to-wall turf grass lawn makes for thirsty work for both the climate and homeowner. Learn about the cultural shift towards eco-friendly alternatives to the US’s estimated 40 million acres of unproductive lawn which depend on excessive feeding, watering, herbicide application, and cutting. Jeff Lorenz, principle at Refugia Design/Build, will share tactics for creating low maintenance, drought-tolerant open spaces in the home landscape, including tips for converting your lawn into a functional and resilient pollinator powerhouse that enhances rather than degrades our ecosystem.

This presentation will be followed by a moderated Q & A.
