Lawn Be Gone at the Green TentPosted on 03/08/15
Want to save water? Ready to replace your thirsty lawn with drought-tolerant California Friendly Landscaping? Don’t know where to start?
Then stop by the Green tent this Sunday, March 8th, and learn about the free California Friendly Landscape Training classes and “Lawn Be Gone” hands-on workshops offered by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
Attend a California Friendly Landscape Training class, and in three hours will learn the essentials of how to transform your lawn into a beautiful, drought-tolerant California friendly landscape that that sponges up water and nourishes your plants without fertilizers, provides food and shelter for pollinators, and uses rainwater as a resource to minimize and even eliminate the need for supplemental irrigation.
Then come and play in the dirt with us and apply your new knowledge in a three-hour “Lawn be Gone” hands-on workshop where you will participate in installing a rain barrel, successfully removing lawn without harmful chemicals, building a rain garden to capture and retain rainwater, and making “soil lasagna” (sheet mulching) to build healthy soil ready for planting.
DWP customers who attend a Lawn Be Gone hands-on workshop will receive a coupon for free garden coaching.
