CANYON – An Earth-Kind Landscape Design School will be offered March 3-5 by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Randall County.

“Anyone interested in learning how to design, plant and manage a landscape that is beautiful and low maintenance is welcome to attend,” said Liz Moore, AgriLife Extension horticulture agent in Randall County.

The sessions will be conducted from 6-9 p.m. March 3-4 and from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. March 5 at the AgriLife Extension office at 200 N. Brown Road in Canyon. Space is limited. Advanced registration is requested by Feb. 26.

The cost of this program is $120 per household, and each household can have two attendees. Along with the three days of instruction, each household will receive an hour of personalized landscape design consultation at a later date.

Some of the topics to be covered include how to draw a landscape to scale, basic landscape design principles, appropriate landscape plant selection, Earth-Kind environmental soil management techniques and Earth-Kind techniques for coping with heat and drought, Moore said.

In addition to Moore, Dr. Steve George, AgriLife Extension landscape specialist in Dallas, will be conducting the school.
