California Friendly Landscape Training Classes

California Friendly Landscape TrainingA more attractive and water-efficient yard sounds enticing, doesn't it? Need more inspiration? Then sign up for a FREE California Friendly Landscape Class!

The San Diego County Water Authority and its member agencies are partnering with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to offer free training classes on WaterSmart landscaping. The classes introduce a holistic approach to landscape design and maintenance that emphasizes water-use efficiency.

The three-hour seminars are fast-paced and informative. They offer solutions to common landscape problems. Participants will learn to think about landscapes from the soil up. In addition, they will learn how to design landscapes that are sustainable in the San Diego climate. Class topics will include how to make the best use of the region’s limited rainfall, irrigate efficiently and choose the best plants for each yard.
