Xeriscaping is a landscaping practice of using as little water as possible, yet still maintaining an attractive and inviting yard. It’s probably no surprise to you that this style of landscape design originated in the drought prone Southwest back in the 1980’s. But...droughts are becoming more common, even in these parts, and summer water limitations have been placed on the Connecticut water consumer.
Join the The Gardener's Center Sean Corenki as he talks about xeriscaping, the style of landscaping that maximizes drought tolerant plants. Properly implemented, he will explain how xeriscaping saves water and makes for a healthier, beautiful and worry-free landscape. Are there good-looking plants that don’t need to be watered often? Can you have a backyard without irrigation (the answer is yes!) Sean will have plants on hand that are not thirsty, and will answer all your gardening questions.
