Sustainability is a path, rather than an endpoint. And, if it follows the pattern of other cultural shifts, sustainability starts at home. From there, it spreads to workplaces, businesses, and our communities at large. So, how do we make our homes – our home landscapes in particular — more sustainable?

This presentation inspires participants with images of residential projects that take a pass on lawns, swimming pools, and other high-resource features. Nan focuses on appropriate plantings, soils, hardscape materials, composting, maintenance, and irrigation approaches that move these gardens along the path towards sustainability.

For professional audiences, Nan discusses ways to communicate the advantages of sustainability to clients as well.
