Chicago Center for Green Technology Hosts Talk on Sustainable Landscaping Tomorrow at 6pm

The Chicago Center for Green Technology (445 N. Sacramento) hosts Kurt Dreisilker of the Morton Arboretum discussing “Sustainable Landscape Concepts from a Public Garden” tomorrow at 6pm.

Many ponds in northern Illinois suffer from similar problems: extreme fluctuations in water level, eroding shorelines, poor water quality, and algal blooms. The Morton Arboretum’s Meadow Lake was rehabilitated in 2004 to stabilize these problems. Learn which concepts and plants are working for the lake and which ones are not after eight years. Learn which engineering designs work well, plant selection do’s and don’ts, and how much maintenance meets the objectives of a public garden.
