MCKINNEY — Anyone can design, plant and manage an attractive landscape that is low-maintenance and tolerant to heat, drought and torrential rain, “the ultimate in environmental responsibility,” said Dr. Steve George, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service landscape specialist in Dallas.
George is creator of the Earth-Kind Environmental Landscape Management System and organizer of the annual Earth-Kind Landscape Design and Management School.
The 2018 school is slated for Feb. 24-25 at Myers Park and Event Center, 7117 County Road. 166, McKinney.
“No prior design, plant or landscape management experience is needed,” George said. “And having a properly designed and managed landscape is one of the best ways to be a good steward of our environment and natural resources.”
George will lead the two-day landscaping course, which he says will consist of in-depth classroom instruction and an outdoor laboratory session.
“When this course is complete, you will have been given a wealth of landscape knowledge and will leave with a labeled working landscape plan for the major landscape area of your choice,” he said.
A course registration fee of $295 per household includes an hour and a half landscape design consultation with George, for each household, a few weeks after the course.
“Class size is very limited so you will want to enroll as soon as possible,” George said.
