From Gray to Green: Native Plants in Parking Strips and Side Yards, a talk by Carrie Jensen.
Break up your concrete. Rip out your lawn. Replace those thirsty plants. Learn how to turn your parking strip or side garden into a haven for drought-tolerant native plants that provide color and texture year-round. Leave with great ideas for appropriate plants, whether you have full sun exposure or the dappled shade of a street tree.
