Water Authority offering class series on WaterSmart landscaping

The San Diego County Water Authority announced it will begin sponsoring summer classes on June 22 around the region to help homeowners adopt WaterSmart landscaping practices.

The free classes will focus on replacing water-intensive turf with low-water-use plants. The sessions kick off with a preview class at 1:30 p.m. on June 22 at the Garden Pavilion Stage of the San Diego County Fair. Anyone with fair admission can attend.

The preview will cover topics featured in the full WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Workshop Series, and arrangements can be made for a free consultation with a landscape designer, the Water Authority said.

The full series of classes will include analyzing participants’ landscapes, creating landscape designs, choosing plants and discovering more efficient irrigation systems. Local landscape industry professionals will lead the classes. The next full-length WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Workshop Series — including four free classes at a single location over several weeks — will start July 9 in San Marcos. A separate series is planned for Chula Vista starting July 12, with additional series expected to start in late August.
