Description

There is a soil–plant continuum—an ecological symbiosis—that is essential for the growth and sustainability of all vegetation. Healthy plants and soil are inseparable and exist as one living system. This session will demonstrate how soil principles are essential components of the landscape system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why soil physical structure, chemistry, and biology work together to support planned vegetation (and why they may differ between various plant communities).
  • Understand how climate interacts with plants and soil to contribute to and build the health of the soil and vegetation system, using the plant as the "power plant.'
  • How small- to large-budget projects benefit from simple soil-plant strategies to increase landscape success, and how standard practices and today’s technology are used to monitor success of the soil-plant system
  • Learn why it is important to work with contractors to understand the system prior to bidding and execution of the contract.
