Xeriscape, Principales, Plants & Practices of Low Water, Low Maintenance Gardening

In the 15 years since the original edition of Creating the Prairie Xeriscape was first published, much has changed. Gardeners are more familiar with the term xeriscape. Mulching is now considered standard practice by home gardeners and landscape professionals. What’s really different? The vastly increased number of hardy, drought-tolerant plants available to prairie gardeners: over 200 genera, 300 species, and nearly 900 varieties of trees, shrubs, vines, annuals, perennials and bulbs are at our disposal! This presentation will cover the principals of xeriscape (design ideas that conserve water, soil improvement, efficient irrigation, reducing conventional lawn areas, and mulching) and the best of these hundreds of hardy and drought tolerant plants for prairie gardens. Your free registration in this class is sponsored by our Healthy Yards partner, the City of Saskatoon.
