Throughout this course, you'll develop a customized Action Plan for dealing with insect pest that are living in your backyard. This Action Plan will help you determine what insects call your yard or garden home, if they're actually causing harm, and how and when to take action.
Plus, you'll learn that there are lots of alternatives to pesticides that can lead to long-term benefits for you, your garden, and the animals that share our outdoor space. We'll also cover:
- instances when you might want to consider chemical control
- least-toxic control options
- how to tell the "good bugs" from the "bad bugs"
- using beneficial insects (aka the good bugs) to help control the pests
I designed my first garden when I was 8 years old, using crayons, graph paper, and several of my dad's seed catalogs. Once I grew up, I decided to get serious about my hobby and earned a degree in landscape design!
Now I own my own company, LK Landscape Design, where I focus on beauty, functionality, and sustainability in both my design and maintenance services. My goal is to create spaces that fit a client's lifestyle, but that also provide food and shelter for neighborhood wildlife.
