Lakescaping – Portland Water District

Portland Water District example of LakescapingWe all know what “landscaping” is. Ever wonder what “lakescaping” is? Unlike landscaping, lakescaping first assesses the lake front  growing environment and then selects native plants that grow best in that environment. Ideally the plants thrive in your specific soils, moisture, and light conditions and do not  require supplemental water, fertilizer, pesticides or excessive labor to maintain.

Laurel Jackson, Water Resources Specialist at the Portland Water District recently spoke at the 2014 WLA Annual Meeting. She had lots of great information and suggestions on how Watchic Lake property owners can “lakescape” to help improve water quality, and improve your enjoyment of your property.
