Xeriscaping for homeowners
WSU Clark County Extension and Clark County Department of Environmental Services is hosting a Xeriscaping workshop on May 30, 2013 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the WSU Extension offices on NE 78th Street.
Learn from professionals how to use your sprinkler less! Learn about plants and watering techniques that save you time and water over the summer.
Xeriscaping, a concept for saving water in landscaped areas, involves planting with slow-growing, drought tolerant plants to conserve water and reduce maintenance costs for your yard or garden. This workshop includes a discussion of native plants adapted to endure drought. Learn about choosing appropriate plants for your garden, grouping them together with other plants with the same watering needs, and planting them in areas that are favorable to their growth.
Jenifer Naas, Watershed Stewards Program Coordinator, says, "Why waste our valuable drinking water on a lawn? Save money and water by designing a water efficient landscape."
