Beautiful gardens and landscapes can add value to a home yet they can end up guzzling more water than all other household uses combined! The truth is that landscapes can be both attractive and water efficient.
Home gardeners and landscape professionals can learn ways to reduce water use in landscapes by attending free water efficient landscape classes sponsored by the Upper District. Classes cover the basics of irrigation systems, watering and fertilizing, basic landscape design and plant identification.There are a number of simple things that can be done to improve an existing landscape or, if your are more ambitious, you can even design a new Water-Smart Landscape. Water efficient techniques and devices can improve the health and beauty of your landscape while saving water and lowering your utility bill.
Upper District’s workshop topics include:
- California Friendly Landscape Training for Residents
- Life After Turf (turf removal and replacement)
- Indoor/Outdoor Leak Detection
- Laundry-2-Landscape (greywater systems)
*All workshops are offered to Upper District residents free-of-charge and most class topics are offered in English, Spanish, and Mandarin (Chinese)
