For many of us, warmer weather gets us thinking about spending more time outdoors, specifically in that wonderful extension of our homes; our yards! Unfortunately, the sad reality is that we get outside and are disappointed by what we see and frustrated about how to fix it. Well rest easy, because WaterWise is here to help!
This Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon, we are hosting the Water Efficient Landscape Design workshop presented by Texas AgriLife Water University’s own Daniel Cunningham! Come and learn about garden design, plant selection, and hardscaping. Register to attend through AgriLife today!
Can’t attend the workshop but still want some good ideas and tools for planning your outdoor living space? Then check out Water University’s new design tool, ULandscapeIt. Another great resource to use as you research your project is Texas SmartScape. And last, but certainly not least, is Earth-Kind Landscaping. Any one of these sites will give you the right tools to design the (colorful, beautiful, playful, formal, relaxed) water efficient landscape you’ve always wanted in your yard!
Now that we’ve filled your tool box with everything you need for design, let’s add one more item – a free sprinkler check-up from Frisco’s own licensed irrigators! We all know how important water is to keep plants alive, but here in North Texas, there is a tendency to overwater our plants and grass which is also bad for our landscape and our water bills. Call us at 972-292-5800 to schedule your check up today, and check out our web-site for tips on how to waterwisely.
