Bayscape and Rain Garden Maintenance workshop

August 29 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Event Navigation

Need confidence in keeping your rain garden or Bayscape looking and working its best? This is the workshop for you!

Native plants such as those used in rain gardens and Bayscapes typically require less maintenance than ornamental plants. That said, native plant gardens still require weeding and a few other types of care throughout the year to keep them at peak performance. Get valuable maintenance advice for these special gardens from our landscape designers at this FREE workshop.

This workshop will be held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel (1704 Old Eastern Ave, Essex, MD 21221) on Saturday, August 29 from 10 am – 12 pm.

Recommended for clients that have had rain gardens and/or Bayscapes installed by the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy. Open to the public!

Due to our Covid-19 policies, we are currently restricting the number of participants for this outdoors event to 10 people total, including our staff. Please make sure to reserve your spot.
