Beautiful Landscapes with Far Less Water


Lynlee Austell-Slayter, MBA, UCCE Master Gardener, Sustainable Landscape Expert. Lynlee inherited her love of plants and nature from both her parents and grandparents. Her mother was a botanist and science teacher. Her grandfather and father collected state fair ribbons for their horticultural talents. Her father also worked as a florist. Lynlee described what she wanted to do in her life when she was in undergraduate microbiology and someone told her she was naive. Yet, she now lives that intention by helping to preserve our natural environment and helping others see the joy in nature. Lynlee has been a UCCE Master Gardener since 2008 and completed additional training in Sustainable Landscape Principals and Integrated Pest Management.
