Waterwise Gardening

April 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In this program we will briefly cover the seven main steps to consider for a waterwise garden including planning and design, soil preparation, tips for irrigation design and technology, criteria for plant selection, turf and turf alternatives, benefits of mulch, and general maintenance. We will also show photos of waterwise design elements and plant choices.
