Description

Xeriscaping 101: The latest trend in stylish landscapes. Imagine a garden that basically takes care of itself! Whether hot and dry or cool and wet, these trendy new gardens are simple, easy, require little water and look fabulous!


Speaker: Aileen Barclay

Since inheriting her father’s garden over 20 years ago, Aileen has combined her education and experience in biology, her love of nature and her horticultural interests to develop a unique and ecological approach to landscaping.

Aileen has delivered sustainable landscaping programs in communities with a combined population of over 5 million residents to educate residents about sustainable landscaping.

She has developed landscaping fact sheets, DVD’s, booklets and plant lists for some of Canada’s largest municipalities and has appeared on Roger’s Daytime TV, In the Know and as co-host on City TV’s “Frankie Flowers Gardening Show”.

She has a few philosophies about gardening:

  • Make your garden work for you. Do not work for your garden.
  • Work with Mother Nature, not against, as you will never win.
  • We have enough stress in our lives. If your garden starts to cause you stress, you’re doing something wrong.
