In this week's installment of "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair talks with Drew Lathin about the environmental benefits of sustainable landscaping. Lathin is Principal Owner of Creating Sustainable Landscapes.
- Traditional landscaping requires outside energy and resources to maintain lawns and cultivate non-native plants and offers little benefit in terms of habitat conservation for Washtenaw County.
- Sustainable landscaping is low maintenance and offers a beautiful alternative to lawn care, while also creating habitat for native wildlife, managing storm water more effectively, and enriching the soil.
