Water-Wise Ways for the Home Garden

Saturday, August 19, 2017 - 9:00am to 11:00am


Although Governor Brown declared an end to the drought emergency in April, water continues to be a limited resource, and water conservation is becoming a way of life in southern California. Knowing that up to 70% of residential water is used for landscaping, informed homeowners seek efficient irrigation methods to minimize water waste as well as their household water bills. Of the many types of irrigation systems, which are the most water-efficient, and which work best in southern California? What are cisterns, bubblers, rotors, and smart controllers and what are the best strategies to using them? Which LADWP or MWD rebates are available to help with the cost of upgrading to these irrigation systems? Alternatively, how can the home gardener use an existing irrigation system more efficiently? Come to our CSUN-al Gardening class and find out!

Wade Andersek is an instructor with Green Media Creations. He instructs the Metropolitan Water District's California Friendly Landscape Training and Residential Turf Removal Training classes and is eager to share his expertise on water-saving methods for the home garden.
