Webinar: “Sponge Landscapes”

April 22 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This webinar introduces sponge landscapes as an accessible method for managing water in urban and suburban areas. Using layers and combinations of native trees and groundcovers, we can put the sponge back into our developed spaces — intercepting, absorbing, and retaining rainwater before it can flood or pollute the landscape.

Learn how to rewild and soften the hardscape with durable native plants, creating a sponge landscape.

See our Native Gardening Blog post, “A Rain Garden at Your Downspout,” for an introduction to rain gardens and sponge landscapes.
