Our 1.75 acre Demonstration Garden is a Certified Wildlife Habitat
and designed to provide educational encounters at every turn. There are numerous model gardens to help homeowners identify waterwise plants that would also look good in their home landscape. The model gardens include a Southwest Garden, a Woodland Garden, a Mediterranean Garden, a turf demonstration area to compare water use of different types of turf, and much more. Each area has interpretive signage to further explain the plants and strategies used. The garden also features full-size architectural facades to emulate what a landscape might look like next to your own home.
In addition to the model gardens, the landscape showcases best practices for Low Impact Development strategies, such as permeable surfaces, mulching, bioswales to collect runoff and recycled water irrigation throughout.
