Current droughts and municipal water restrictions add to the challenge of designing water-wise landscapes that recognize water as a precious commodity. This program covers water-wise garden design principles and plant selection, as well as watering equipment and techniques that can keep a garden thriving despite hot arid conditions.  Kirk will provide examples on matching systems with the plants being grown and share the maintenance checks you should be conducting.

The webinar has a limit of 100 attendees, but an unlimited number of people can register and see a recording of the program.  All attendees must register to either attend the live seminar or view the recording.  After registering, participants will be provided a link for the live session or to view a recording of the program. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to the webinar and receive answers during the live program as time allows. Questions not answered during the live webinar will be answered by email.

This seminar complements the recent publication of the book From Drought to Deluge: The Resilient Central Texas Garden, which can be purchased online from the Travis County Master Gardeners Association.
