Eric & Brad Dryer, owners of Earth Sense Landscaping & Garden Center and Ashland Area Mulch, will share some attractive landscaping ideas to address storm water runoff with bio-filtration and permeable pavers. They will show how these techniques can be used in your backyard to create an attractive space that reduces erosion, filters water, and recharges underground aquifers. Mulching your gardens can minimize weeds and maximize your plants. Eric & Brad will share the pros and cons of mulch and how to optimize its use.
