Marcus de la fleur, Landscape Architect, will discuss the stunning appearance of sustainable stormwater management at the residential scale. This includes the use of native prairie plants and resilient ecological landscaping practices including rain gardens and bioswales. He will also touch on the soils of the midwest, another important aspect in the development of sustainable landscapes. He has created pilot projects to demonstrate that garden aesthetics can be combined with sustainable and ecological yards as well as stormwater management.
