  1. After years of choosing plants just based on looks, I have recently come to realize the benefits of choosing native plants. Landscaping with plants that belong in your climate and soil means less water consumption and increased environmental health. I wish there was a conference like this one in my area, because I think it would inspire local landscapers.

  3. Plants are the most important source for livelihood

  4. This is by far one of the best places to hang with friends, have great drinks (amazing beer selection), eat some great food, including the great lunch I had at Los Angeles event space here. Prices are very reasonable and the pizza was awesome.

  5. Also not every plant is self supportive you might need to provide support in the form of cage or sticks. Contact NSW Synthetic Grass

  6. Looks like im late. But I always love this subject. Landscaping is much more than just planting a few flowers and catering to a few shrubs lining your backyard.

  7. Thanks for your insight for your fantastic posting. I’m glad I have taken the time to see this. Paul Grant
