See larger Cathy Feser talks good landscaping sense at Mackle Park on Friday. Feser is the horticulture extension agent with the University of Florida Collier County Extension Service, and was on Marco Island to deliver a seminar on smart landscaping practices for Marco Island. The seminar was sponsored by the extension service, the City of Marco Island and the city’s Beautification Advisory Committee. With the amped up water restrictions facing the region since Jan. 15, the seminar could not have been more timely, as Feser discussed the common mistake of overwatering plants and emphasized the practicability of using native vegetation to landscape.
