By Press Release Monday, February 03 2014 @ 08:07 PM EST
At the next meeting of the Bergen County Master Gardeners, Sonja Clark, Director, Communtiy Relations, United Water will present a very special program on “Xeriscape Landscaping”.
Come and learn about United Water’s conservation program designed to help conserve the Earth’s most precious natural resource: Water. From the Greek word “xeros,” which means “dry,” Xeriscape Gardens require less water than traditional gardens.
Learn how to create a beautiful “xeriscape” or “conservation” garden, by following techniques that can reduce your landscape water use by up to 60%, and, significantly reduce your garden maintenance. Xeriscapes also focus on native plants that are naturally drought tolerant.
