Zoom: Formal Landscape Design with Native Plants

7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Formal Landscape Design with Native Plants
A joint presentation with Wild Ones Prairie Edge Chapter

James Faupel will share his design methodology on how to incorporate native plants into a front yard setting. This webinar’s discussion will cover topics such as determining what microclimate your front yard is, design method/styles, plant selection, maintenance throughout the year, use of turf grass, and much more. Your neighbors will be envious of your tidy gardens, and will want to know all about your well behaved native plants.

James Faupel works for the Missouri Botanical Garden at the Litzsinger Road Ecology Center (LREC). The ecology center is a 39-acre educational site in St. Louis County, Missouri, where James is the Supervisor of Restoration Ecology. There he manages invasive species and introduces native plants back into the restored prairies and woodlands, and does native plant outreach in the St Louis region. He started out in horticulture working in the nursery industry and later the design & landscaping trade. He most recently worked at Shaw Nature Reserve as a horticulturist and restorationist in the Whitmire Wildflower Garden. James also volunteers with Grow Native/Missouri Prairie Foundation, and is an active member of the St. Louis Wild Ones and Missouri Native Plant Society. He has been working with native plants for nearly 17 years, and enjoys watching the diverse amount of wildlife they attract and provide for.
