Crack the Concrete: Environmentally-Friendly Hardscaping Workshop
Saturday | April 22, 2017 | 10:00 am — 12:00 pm
Garden for the Environment | Lawton Street at 7th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94122
Creating pathways and patios in your home garden can be a great way to make the space more accessible and useful, but there are better ways than pouring concrete! Join us to learn how you can incorporate water-efficient permeable hardscape surfaces into your landscape using natural or recycled materials.
