Presenter: Beth Leonard, Extension Master Gardener Volunteer

A 50% slope is not for garden sissies, but with planning, perseverance, and technique, you can turn your steep hillside into a garden paradise. This case study follows a homeowner’s five year transition from bare clay and weedy growth to green and luscious. See how she used both hardscape and plantings to create a welcoming entry along a conifer hillside, transform a meadow, and embrace the woodland. Follow her steps—define goals, analyze the site, choose the right plants, and manage maintenance. Recognize how different areas of your property may require different approaches and learn handy techniques for working on steep slopes.

The talk is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.

You are invited to bring a brown bag lunch.
