Conservation Landscaping Class

June 27 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Beds and wildflowers in a beautiful unmowed lawn.

Are you interested in transforming your turf lawn into a beautiful, lively, native landscape that supports clean water? Join us for an informative session about the benefits and practices of converting your lawn into a native landscape that improves the health of our watershed. 

Native plants have deeper roots that are better suited for slowing down, absorbing, and filtering pollutants from stormwater. By building a rain garden or pocket prairie, you help restore our landscape to a natural state, improve water resources, and provide habitat for beneficial wildlife. 

Cumberland River Compact supports the construction of pocket prairies and rain gardens for Davidson County residents. We provide the knowledge and resources to get you started and a maintenance plan that ensures the long-term sustainability of your garden. To learn more, please join us on June 27th at East Branch Library. 

What to expect:

  • A 30-minute informative presentation
  • A ‘redesign your backyard’  activity 
  • Q/A session

What you will learn:

  • How to integrate water-conscious practices into your garden design. 
  • Purpose and benefits of pocket prairies and rain gardens. 
  • The garden style that is the best fit for your yard.
  • How to build and care for your garden in all seasons. 

Please note: There are a limited number of spots available for this event. By registering, you are committing to attend. If something comes up preventing your attendance, please email to let me know so the spot can be reopened for another. Thank you!
