Landscape Transformation Basics Workshop

Facilities, event, and program cancellations due to COVID-19

In consideration of guidelines recently published by the California Department of Public Health to protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, all in-person Waterwise Community Center and Chino Basin Water Conservation District events, workshops, and mulch and compost giveaways are cancelled until further notice. Our building, gardens, and restrooms are currently closed until further notice.

Please check the website for our online event offerings.

We will be closely monitoring the situation, and will resume regular programming as soon as possible.

Thank you for your interest in our programs and in contributing to a waterwise community. We look forward to seeing you at our events once programming is resumed.

Join us at one of our upcoming free evening workshops at the Waterwise Community Center where we will teach you the basics you need to know to start planning your landscape transformation and learn about available rebates to help make it happen!

Attendance at this class is required before participants can sign up for the Residential Landscape Design Assistance program.

Converting your yard to a vibrant and low water landscape can seem intimidating, but we are here to help. In this two and a half hour workshop learn:

  • why a waterwise landscape can do more for you than your old yard ever did
  • basics of creating a plan and resources to help, including our no cost landscape design assistance program (within service area)
  • how to apply for eligible rebates for landscape transformation and other rebate and installation programs
  • basics of turf removal and project preparation
  • basics of understanding what changes may be needed to your irrigation system
  • advice on project planning and the best times of year to remove lawn and plant
  • advice on choosing and hiring a contractor
  • other sources of information to help you on your next steps

Each of the evening workshops will present the same information. All classes take place a the Waterwise Community Center, 4594 San Bernardino Street in Montclair, from 6:00PM-8:00PM unless otherwise noted.
