Landscape Design for Homeowners Workshops
This free, three-hour workshop will teach homeowners the basics of how to do a landscape makeover. Topics include soil, design, turf removal, plant selection, planning, irrigation, rainwater catchment and implementation -- all the elements needed to convert high-water-use turf to a beautiful, water-efficient landscape.

Based on the award-winning A Homeowner's Guide to a WaterSmart Landscape, participants will receive an introduction to the knowledge, skills and resources needed to create a WaterSmart landscape as well as learn the concepts required to ensure that if they hire a contractor to install their new landscape, it will be WaterSmart. Other students will be motivated to register for the full, four-class WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Series, while accomplished do-it-yourself students will be able to move forward on their own.
