Design Your Yard with Earth-Kind Landscaping
Join the Denton County Master Gardeners on Tuesday evenings from September 5 through October 10, 2017, 6:30 — 8:30 P.M. for the Design Your Yard with Earth-Kind® Landscaping course. This course concentrates on creating beauty and productivity using Earth-Kind® practices that conserve time, energy, water, and money through thoughtful planning of your yard or garden.
The course will be taught at the Carroll Building, 401 W. Hickory Street, Denton, Texas 76201 (map). Fee for the class is $100 for one person or bring your spouse for $125 for a couple. A book and basic drawing supplies will be provided, as well as snacks and drinks. (Spouses will share materials and design the same yard.).
Please visit dcmga.com to register for the class.
Prior to the class, participants will need to make a copy of their lot survey, usually a part of your property deed. If you can’t find a copy of your survey, check with the realtor who sold you the property. Also, take several pictures of the spaces to be designed, and obtain any HOA or city requirements. You may also download Google Earth for free, type in your address and look at plan and street views of your property. You may also wish to go to soiltesting.tamu.edu and follow the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service information to have your soil tested before the class. The Urban and Homeowner Soil Sample Information Form will provide you with how and where to collect samples, cost and how to mail your sample. You may also bring a soil sample to class.
