Create Your Own Landscape Master Plan

Creating a landscape master plan is an important step if you are installing or redoing your garden. Planning helps you identify the unique characteristics and requirements for your particular garden. Additionally, good planning has other benefits like cost and time savings. Join Travis County Master Gardener Sandy Stone who discusses how to document and analyze your site in this webinar.

Sandy breaks the process into clear steps that you can follow and gives you tips and tricks along the way. You’ll learn how to create a plan of your property, where to gather code and zoning information, and which current site conditions to analyze.

Sandy is also the guest speaker the following week where she finishes up with design, implementation, and construction.
