According to the Kennebec Journal, the Cooperative Extension of both the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire will be hosting an ornamental garden design webinar from 6-7 the evening of Wednesday, March 10th.

Admittedly, I'm not much of a gardener or landscaper myself so I actually had to look up exactly what ornamental landscaping is. Here's what I found from SF Gate Homeguides,

"Ornamental landscaping serves the primary purpose of adding visually pleasing plants to the landscape. ... While plants used in an ornamental landscape may serve other purposes as well, the reasons for their selection in an ornamental landscape are their visual qualities and decorative effect."

This is something that could benefit someone like me immensely. As a homeowner, I strive to have a pleasant looking yard, I just don't know much about how to make that happen aside from mowing the lawn. Though, I am a wicked good mower of lawns.

If you'd like to attend the webinar, you will need to register for it. You can either attend the live version as it's happening, or you can get a link to the recording and watch it back at your leisure. Click here to register for the upcoming webinar and, if you feel so inclined, you can even leave a $5 donation as well.
