Landscape Transformation Basics - Online Workshop

Thursday, October 14, 2021

Thinking about putting in a beautiful and waterwise landscape at home? Join us to learn about the process and rebates to help make it happen

Whether you are starting with a lawn, a “lawn,” dirt, or a patch of weeds, in this workshop we will teach you the basics you need to know to start planning your landscape transformation!

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

Note: We are located in Southern California and content will be focused on our region. Participants in other areas may find general information presented to be useful.

This workshop will be recorded for later public posting.
