Median strips along sidewalks in the EBMUD service area often exceed their water budget up to 200 percent. On Monday, September 16, 2019 Patricia St. John, Horticultural Instructor at Merritt College and Owner of St. John Landscapes and Laura Henry Kukulski, Landscape Designer, will present eye-catching designs and plant palettes of low-water use median strips. Come take a virtual tour with us around the EBMUD service area to view these beautiful, water-wise, narrow garden designs.

Laura has been practicing Landscape Design for five years. Laura has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Computer Modeling and an Associate Degree in Landscape Architecture.
