Landscaping classes offered in San AntonioBy Bill Hopkins on March 1, 2013
Classes teaching landscaping with native plants will be offered in San Antonio this Spring at three locations and in two different skill levels.
Learn to identify native Texas trees, shrubs, flowering plants and grasses that grow well in San Antonio. Understand the ecological benefits these plants provide to wildlife, water quality and soil and discover the human benefits that native plants offer such as water conservation, run-off reduction and low maintenance. Become a better steward of the land in your yard, at the jobsite and in wildlife habitats.
Join a Native Landscape Certificate class this spring. Students are expected to pass a native plant identification exam and will receive a Native Landscape Certificate at the end of the class.
Classes are open to the public and are geared toward homeowners as well as landscape professionals.
Level 1 is an introductory-level one-day class, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, with no prerequisites.

Level 2 is for those who have completed Level 1 and want to learn more. It is a two-day class, 8:00 to 5:00 Saturday and 9:00 to noon on Sunday:
