Join Xeriscape specialist Gwen Steele for an informative presentation on xeriscaping on Saturday August 7 from a0 am to noon. There really is more to this form of gardening than covering your entire yard with gravel - Think of it as gardening WITH nature.

 

Some of the benefits of this type implementing this type of garden in your Okanagan yard include:

 

•·         Enhancing the real estate value of your home with an attractive and water conserving landscape.

•·         Reducing water use- depending on the design and the plants used, water use can be reduced by over 50%.

•·         Saving time- less watering, trimming, weeding and mowing.

•·         Saving money- less water, chemicals, fertilizer, and replacement of dead plants.

•·         Elimination of pesticide/herbicide use- plants growing in their ideal conditions thrive and  

•·         Protecting your family's health and that of the environment - including keeping poisonous chemicals out of our water.

Limited Tickets for this event are only $5.00  and available at Briteland (32008 - 28th St. Vernon, BC) and the RDNO office - 9848 Aberdeen Road Coldstream, BC) Following the morning session a free Xerindipity garden tour follows between 1 and 2 pm.

Hi Terry,

Thanks for taking time to read - and to comment! Xeriscaping is becoming very popular here - and can be extremely beautiful if done correctly.   I hope to learn more about it and implement it in parts of my yard
