WaterSmart Lecture - 'Desert Rain Gardens'

Desert rain gardens. Rainscapes. Rain-fed landscapes. Rainscaping. Whatever your name for it, landscapes designed to rely on natural rainfall are the ultimate in water-efficient landscaping! Once established, they survive entirely on rainwater. This class teaches the essentials for design, installation, plant selection and realistic characteristics and expectations for rainfed landscapes. Join professional landscape designer Vicki France as she takes you through the basics of designing a desert rain garden for your water-efficient landscape.
