FREE Homeowner Landscape Workshop

Join us for a FREE 1-full day 2-segment workshop on Watershed Wise Landscape Overview & Design!
 
Water conservation is no longer just about "losing the thirsty lawn" and reducing irrigation! Find out how to create drought resilient landscapes that conserve water, reduce pollution, invite habitat, and are downright gorgeous.
 
Watershed Basics: Learn to create gardens that thrive in our local climate, use resources wisely, and look beautiful.
  • See your garden as a mini-watershed
  • Create living soil sponge that holds onto water
  • Treat rainwater as an abundant resource
  • Choose the right plants for the right place
  • Manage irrigation to eliminate waste and run off
 
Hands-on Landscape Design: Replace your lawn with a beautiful climate appropriate garden. The interactive workshop helps you design a successful watershed-wise landscape. Learn how to do the following:
  • Contour the landscape for maximum rainwater capture
  • Create a list of climate-appropriate plants
  • Place plants on a property plan according to water needs and key design principles
