Landscape designers, installers and maintenance technicians are invited to take advantage of a one and half day training on Nov. 12 & 14 in Everett.

The class will cover site selection, soils, local regulations, designs, plant selection and more.

These regulations are and will increasingly result in the creation of new jobs in the landscape industry.The cost for the training is $100 for those who register after Oct. 31. Included in registration will be lunch and refreshments, handbook and information on local regulations.
