Using less water is not only good for the environment, it’s also great for saving some extra dollars.

The Fort Worth Water Department, in partnership with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, is hosting a series of monthly free seminars highlighting how to save water in your landscape.

Through these seminars, you will learn:

  • How to keep landscapes healthy even with water restrictions.
  • How to plan and grow a water-saving garden/landscape.
  • How to perform irrigation checkups and make minor repairs and adjustments to your system.
  • Why drip irrigation is the most efficient irrigation method.

Seminars begin March 3 and run through November. All seminars are at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, Iris Room, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd.
