Go Back To School — Landscape Design School

Calling all novice landscapers: You've got some learning to do! Sign up for WaterSaver Landscape Design School and go from gardening greenhorn to green thumb in no time!

When it comes to designing a landscape with watersaving ways, do you know how to work with your property? Do you know what plants to select? Or how to improve your soil for said plants?

Enter the WaterSaver Landscape Design School.

Presented by the Gardening Volunteers of South Texas, the design school is an interactive and informal class where participants get valuable information on xeriscapes, design, drought tolerant plants, and low maintenance tips and tricks. But the most unique feature is the one-on-one consultations with a landscape expert who will answer and address your personal landscape questions.

Class happens this Saturday, May 5, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Fair Oaks Country Club, 7900 Fair Oaks Parkway.

Cost is quite reasonable: $30 for an individual, $50 for two members of a household. Considering all you get — personalized landscape consultation and three full color plant and landscape guides — it’s a steal!

Register now for the WaterSaver Landscape Design School. There is limited space.
