Water District hosts landscape classes

Submitted By Sharene Gonzales

The Alameda County Water District is partnering with the Bay Area Water Supply & Conservation Agency to host two free 1-day classes in April and May that will outline the basics of creating low-water use landscapes:

Replacing Lawns with Low-Water Use Plants:
Learn about selection and needs of California natives and drought tolerant plants. These selections require less water than turf yet add a beautiful and natural look to any garden. Also learn about outdoor water conservation strategies and the garden's natural cycles for sustainability.

Saturday, April 13
Alameda County Water District Headquarters
43885 South Grimmer Blvd., Fremont
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.


Water-Efficient Landscape Irrigation:
Prepare your garden and irrigation system for the summer months by learning about water-conserving irrigation strategies. The class includes basic drip irrigation design and installation, how to choose the right irrigation components, watering techniques, and proper system maintenance for your landscaping.

Saturday, May 4
LEAF Center Garden
36501 Niles Blvd. at Nursery Ave., Fremont
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
