Your shoreline can be natural but also beautiful, while maintaining access to the lake and great lake views. Attract butterflies and pollinators. Help your lake’s fish habitats and water quality. Deter nuisance geese. Increase privacy…All while supporting our healthy ecosystems for future generations. Come to this workshop and take home a custom garden design for your shore using native plants which are tailored to your aesthetic and your needs! Join seasoned experts with over 20 years’ experience in naturalizing, restoring, and designing shoreline gardens across Ontario. These 3 hour workshops are in a classroom setting at a community meeting venue near the lake or at the Land Between Charity Head Office in Haliburton. Bring pictures of your shoreline. Hear about why your shore is significant to the health of the lake and why your choices are important. Learn about plants, design aspects, and lighting effects. Choose colours, heights, areas and more. Landowners can also take part in case studies here, to learn from other examples.
These workshops are $20 at the door, with a minimum participation of 15.
