City Kicks Off Virtual Water-Wise Landscape Tour, May 24 – May 30
The City invites the Woodland community to visit WaterWiseWoodland.Weebly.com any day starting Monday, May 24 through Sunday, May 30 to learn tips and tricks to help make your own landscape more water-wise. The Ninth Annual Water-Wise Landscape Tour will be fully virtual this year and will explore unique, water-wise yards, throughout Woodland. Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at gorgeous gardens and access to plant lists for each one. Woodland residents that attend the City’s virtual tour can also enter this year’s Water-Wise Raffle for a chance to win landscape books and water efficiency prizes.
As California faces one of the driest years on record, it is important to conserve water when possible. With over half of the water we use at home going to irrigation, it’s no surprise that yards are the first place to look when trying to reduce water use. This tour will feature an array of front and back yards, which have been re-designed to reduce water use and fit the homeowners’ lifestyles. In addition, key water-wise plants that can be planted in any Woodland yard will be highlighted for each landscape.
The best ideas come from real-life examples, so come draw inspiration for your yard and start working towards creating your own water-wise landscape.
