Course Description and Credit Information

This webinar discusses how Landscape Architects can use best practices around chemical applications, their impacts, and when to call in experts, as well as how to make some basic decisions when you are building, maintaining, and working on landscapes with regard to the impact on the soils, as a soil scientist is not able to work on every project.

This webinar discusses the chemicals in the soil and which parts of the soil that chemical impacts; for example, salt impacts soil biology, pH, and structure. These impacted parts of the soil, impacted by chemicals, then impact plants. Compaction and drainage problems that affect the urban environment will also be discussed.
