Free Online Water-Wise Landscape Design Workshops

PRESS RELEASE

City of Woodland

300 First Street


Redesigning your front yard is an exciting, yet daunting project. We are here to help make that process a little easier. Join us for two free online water-wise workshops that will help you plan and design a drought-tolerant landscape in your own front yard. The “Plant Your Ideas” workshop will be on October 15 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and the “Just Add Water” workshop will be on October 22 from 6 p.m –  8 p.m. Registration is limited to the first 25 Woodland residents. Please register at EnviroWoodland.org/WaterConservation. 

In the Sacramento region, over half of a homeowner’s water is used outdoors. Switching from thirsty turf to plants well-suited for California’s Mediterranean climate not only saves water, but offers a wide range of aesthetic and ecological benefits.  

The “Plant Your Ideas” online workshop will begin with a presentation on basic landscape design principles and issues homeowners should consider before beginning their projects. Following this, attendees will create custom landscape designs for their front yards using aerial photos and “drag & drop” shapes representing plant types. 

The “Just Add Water” workshop will give participants an introduction to water-saving drip irrigation systems and an opportunity to create a water-wise irrigation system for their landscape design. Landscape professionals and volunteers from the UCCE Master Gardeners Yolo County will be present at both workshops to answer questions and give advice. Both workshops will be fully online and attendees will need a computer with a webcam to participate.

These workshops are hosted by the City of Woodland Environmental Services and the Yolo County Resource Conservation District. For more information, contact Water Conservation at (530) 661-2067 or email conservewater@cityofwoodland.org.
