The key to building beautiful gardens in South Florida relies heavily on choosing the right building materials for your application and applying common sense construction techniques to your
garden design. Miami landscape designer, Carlos Somoza, will present both natural and man-made building material alternatives including precast concrete pavers, local and imported stone, and tropical hardwood decking.
