Seminar Description:
Healthy, beautiful gardens rely on healthy, biodiverse soils - this core understanding can help you give your clients the landscapes that they’ve always wanted, and that they can feel good about in the process. Learn how to take a holistic approach to landscape installation by focusing on the soil, which will provide plants with the slow-release nutrients they need, reduce the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides, provide erosion control, and decrease water use by over 30% - saving you time, and saving your clients’ money. All of these landscaping benefits can help you win and retain clients, while ensuring environmental health and safety for their kids, pets, and for your employees.

Learning Objectives:
1. Provide plants with ongoing natural slow-release nutrients they need, while supporting beneficial soil microbes and fungi that also contribute to plant health.
2. Reduce the thirst of the landscape; learn the formula for decreasing water use by over 30%.
3. Step into a healthier, more holistic approach to landscape installation. Safe for children and pets; reducing the need for chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides.
