  • CSUN-al Gardening Series: Water-Wise Gardening, Saturday, November 22, 9-11 a.m. Stephen Baldonado, I Garden
    With the entire state of California in moderate to exceptional drought conditions, municipalities are regulating the use of landscape water. Watering restrictions, hefty fines, and incentive programs are ways of encouraging less water usage. One approach is to remove or reduce the resource-needy lawn, and replace it with a California-friendly, water-wise planting. Homeowners who want an attractive landscape should consider water-wise plants that will perform well with less water and less maintenance than a lawn.

    On Saturday, November 22, from 9 to 11 a.m., landscape designer and Cal Poly Pomona graduate Stephen Baldonado will explain the process of replacing a lawn with water-wise landscaping. In addition to over 5 years with his garden design business, I Garden, Stephen has worked at New York's Central Park and the New York Botanical Garden. He offers a full schedule of presentations at local garden events as well as assisting Scott Daigre with Tomatomania events for the past 7 seasons.
