Helping Your Yard Drink Responsibly (And Look Good)
Up to 70% of your home water use may be currently used in your landscape, but there are ways to increase efficiency while maintaining or improving the health of your landscape plants. Tempe offers free landscape workshops twice a year, in the spring and fall. The workshops teach residents how to beautify their yards while conserving water through xeriscaping. Each workshop is taught by an expert and located at the SRP Education Center at the Eisendrath House Complex (1400 N. College Ave.).
