C’mon on down to SAWS’ premier gardening shindig!

Help your landscape get back in the saddle and learn to garden like a Texan at Spring Bloom, Saturday, March 9.

Need help creating a landscape that can weather our extended droughts, deep freezes and extreme heat that had us all wilting last summer? Get your boots on and giddyap to Spring Bloom to learn how to wrangle your water use and make your landscape tougher than a nine-banded armadillo!

If you haven’t explored the new WaterSaver Community at San Antonio Botanical Garden yet, their staff will share ideas from the exhibit which features five stunning landscapes with no grass or irrigation.
