Ten Trends in Landscape and Land Care

Ten Trends in Landscape and Land Care

Professional landscapers work on lots of different properties, with different conditions and different plants. Garden center owners meet the public every day as people shop for plants and related products. 
Have you ever wondered what they know about landscapes and land care--and what they wish more home gardeners understood? 
In this one-hour talk, we'll make a brief visit to the world of landscape professionals. Listen as professional landscapers and garden center owners describe what they see for the future, and what common beliefs and practices they wish would change. Learn what the landscape industry thinks about its direction. We'll also talk about technology on the horizon. 
Be prepared for some laughs and perhaps a bit of controversy.
