Landscaping During Drought: Roseville Class Offers Help



Roseville, Calif. - The City of Roseville is hosting a hands-on workshop to help residents learn tips and tricks to keep their gardens growing during the drought.

The class will teach residents how to develop irrigation schedules, evaluate existing irrigation systems for problems and incorporate new water saving technologies into current landscaping.

"There are ways for property owners to keep their landscapes healthy while still meeting the 20 percent mandatory water cutbacks," said Lisa Brown, Environmental Utilities outreach and program administrator. "This workshop will help Roseville residents learn techniques they can immediately implement at home to continue saving water."

The class begins at 10 a.m. at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center and costs $6 for Roseville residents and $8 for non-residents. Experts will be on hand to demonstrate best practices for outdoor water use and simple steps for re-evaluating current water use habits to find more water efficient alternatives.
