Did you know that approximately 70 percent of water used in our area is for irrigation? Are you interested in saving water and money?

The city of Woodland will host its second annual free tour of water-wise landscapes on Saturday, June 1, to learn about creative alternatives to water-thirsty lawns. Water-wise landscapes use less water during the hot summer months, can reduce the potential for discharge of pollutants into the storm water system, and provide welcome habitat for beneficial insects and birds.

The tour activities will begin at 8:30 a.m. with registration at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East St. Participants are invited to peruse displays on alternative grass and irrigation, pick up literature and example planting plans for water-wise home landscapes, see a presentation on beneficial insects and get an overview of the tour sites. Tour guide books and maps will be available at the center.

The self-guided garden tour runs from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Participants will learn how owners removed existing plant material, prepared the sites, addressed challenges and set up irrigation systems. Homeowners and volunteers will be at the tour destinations to answer additional questions about the landscapes. The example landscapes represent a wide variety of settings, approaches and features.
