Going Native for Hedges, Screens and Privacy with Laurie Albrecht, UF/IFAS Extension Environmental Horticulture Agent, Palm Beach County
Join us on Tuesday to discover the native plants that can define property lines, screen out unsightly views, and provide security and privacy. We are fortunate to have Laurie to provide insight on this topic and answer our native landscaping questions.
Laurie Albrecht is a University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) extension faculty member in the field of environmental horticulture. Her responsibilities for Palm Beach County include coordinating the Florida Friendly Landscaping™ and Native Canopy Education programs, as well as providing science-based landscaping solutions to commercial clients. Laurie has years of experience teaching science-based workshops on Florida native plants, including their identification, uses and relative storm resilience.
