Recorded on April 16, 2014 as part of the 2014 Cornell Landscape Webinar Series. Sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension Sustainable Landscapes-Horticulture Program Work Team.
Dr. Nina Bassuk, of Cornell University and the Urban Horticulture Institute, shares how woody shrubs can provide low-maintenance, attractive cover for stormwater retention and infiltration applications such as filter strips, swales and rain gardens. Dr. Bassuk discusses how utilizing woody plants rather than herbaceous plants decreases the need for additional seasonal maintenance while successfully adding aesthetic and functional vegetation to stormwater retention practices.
