Measuring Soil Health and Managing Site Challenges in an Urban Landscape

October 3, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm


This hands-on, indoor/outdoor workshop introduces the concept of the soil health assessment and the implementation of soil health indicators for evaluating the biological, chemical, and physical attributes of soil as they pertain to the constraints of a site. Use of these soil health indicators will help landscape architects, garden designers, arborists, and landscape professionals deter- mine the appropriate products, tools, equipment, and techniques needed to correct soil constraints and to develop a seasonal maintenance plan for a newly installed land- scape, from installation to establishment and on to maturity. Bring a bag lunch.
