Xeriscape workshops will be offered again

Some Summerlanders who missed out on the xeriscape and irrigation workshops presented in May might wish they had attended after receiving their first metered water bills. The same two workshops are being offered in September: xeriscape on Sept. 11 and Irrigation on Sept. 17.

Dear Editor:

Some Summerlanders who missed out on the xeriscape and irrigation workshops presented in May might wish they had attended after receiving their first metered water bills.

The same two workshops are being offered in September: xeriscape on Sept. 11 and Irrigation on Sept. 17.

People who attend will learn how to reduce the water they use on their present landscaping, how to plan a waterwise landscape, and the easiest and most efficient ways to irrigate that landscape.

Check the Parks and Recreation Fall brochure or call the office at 250-494-0447 for more information.
