Water-Saving Seminars

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

Through these seminars attendees 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 check-ups; make minor repairs and adjustments to your system
  • Why drip irrigation is the most efficient irrigation method

Seminar Schedule

All seminars take place from 6 to 8 p.m. inside the Fort Worth Botanic Garden Iris Room, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd.
