Soils Simplified
presented by Kevin Donnelly (Midwest Trading)

We all want the landscape vision we present to clients to succeed.  Getting there is a balancing act between the ideals of horticulture and the realities of budget and time.  Often a one size fits all approach is utilized for materials and practices.  While there are some clear advantages to keeping it simple, there are some opportunities that can improve the landscape, increase both efficiency and profit by being more strategic in material choices and horticultural practices.  In this talk we will discuss product options for soils, amendments, and mulches, look at relative costs, review some labor savings and practice strategies that can be applied to different situations that will improve landscape performance, boost profitability, and optimize your labor force.

Conquering Clay – Plants & Prep
presented by Nikki Melin & Shannon McEnerney

Clay soil is the bane of many landscapers throughout the Midwest. Slow to drain after rain, slow to warm in the spring, too compacted for root growth – these are just a few of the issues clay soil present in the landscape. This webinar will highlight some of the plants that can tolerate clay soil and touch on how we amend the soil in our display gardens where clay can be an issue.
