CLCA Member Benefit Webinar, with Greg Rubin: Unlocking the Secrets to Native Landscaping

Is your community’s planning department strictly enforcing new Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO) regulations? A mastery of native plants can streamline the process and help avoid the delays, frustration, confusion and worse reported by many contractors. In this fast-paced webinar, we’ll touch on all aspects of native landscaping, and how it differs from conventional ornamental horticulture. Learn specific information about native mycorrhizal soil ecology, how to capture that ecology in the home landscape, design concepts and styles, plant selection, irrigation design, watering schedules, maintenance, mulches, pest and weed control. Our presenter is Greg Rubin, a licensed landscape contractor, author of two books on native plants, and president and founder of California’s Own Native Landscape Design.
