Arlington Water Utilities, in partnership with Tarrant Regional Water District and the Arlington Public Library, will host two informative and fun spring events in April. The two events, Tough Texas Lawns and Gardens and a DIY Rainwater Harvesting Workshop, will be hosted online, and registration information is online at SaveArlingtonWater.com.
Tough Texas Lawns and Gardens
April 12, 6 -7 p.m.
It’s no surprise to Texans that the weather is often, at best, unpredictable. It never hurts to have a lawn and garden tough enough to withstand the ever-changing Texas weather.
Participants will also learn about:
- The ins and outs of landscape design
- How to evaluate the needs of your landscape
- Plants that need less water and maintenance
- Turf types that need less water
TRWD professionals will be in the virtual conference to walk participants through what makes the North Texas climate harsh and how to ensure that you have a healthy and vibrant landscape. They will also tell participants how they can create a vibrant yard on their own.
