Xeriscape landscapes are colourful and attractive. With the diversity of water wise plant species available, almost any style of gardening is possible. The easy to follow principles will guide you in using methods to garden in harmony with nature. Learn simple ways to drastically reduce landscape water use while at the same time saving time and money. Maintenance will be reduced – less mowing, trimming, weeding, watering and fertilizing are needed. Plants will thrive. Healthy plants are highly resistant to pests and diseases thereby reducing or eliminating the need for chemical pesticides and fertilizers.


Our XERISCAPE (WATER WISE) GARDENING CLASS material is also available as a one day workshop locally or away from Kelowna.
