Landscape Design with Irrigation Focus (But First, “The Basics”)
Thursday, September 30, 2021
1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT
Hosted by the ASLA Water Conservation PPN

In almost all managed landscape environments, irrigation is beneficial for optimal plant health. Landscapes designed with this understanding allow for more efficient installation and management. This webinar, the first in this series, will provide the learner with the fundamentals of appropriate equipment, hydraulics, and soil/plant/water relationships that are needed to improve landscape designs with more focus on irrigation requirements.

Join us for a deep dive into the limits, challenges, and opportunities of implementing large-scale and long-range land use plans through community-led and resident-driven planning. This series of presentations and panel discussion will explore high level and brass tacks approaches for working to implement Baltimore’s Green Network Plan in two Baltimore neighborhoods. Together we will compare notes and unpack solutions and inspirations from locally nuanced, affirmative, capacity-building approaches to center people in the implementation of large-scale land planning efforts.
