Planting Party!

DIY Landscape Center @ Asphalt Materials

West Jordan, Utah
9:00 am-12:00 pm

Join us for a container planting party at the DIY Landscape Center! Joy Bossi of the radio program “Joy in the Garden” will be broadcasting live from the event.  Bring your empty containers and we’ll help you fill them up! The DIY Landscape Center will provide their special container soil blend and a place to make the mess where YOU won’t have to clean it up!  Quality container plants will also be available and experts with Design Resource will be there to offer up free design advice so you can create your most beautiful containers yet.  There is no fee to attend and all needed items (except containers) will be provided.

Advanced Waterwise Landscape Design

West Jordan, Utah
6:30-7:30 pm

Cynthia will be teaching an advanced waterwise landscape design for homeowners who are already familiar with landscape design or for those who have completed the basic class.  The class will focus on the small details that make the difference between a fabulous Xeriscape and a sterotypical ‘Zeroscape’.


Creating a Waterwise Landscape Plan on a Budget

 Saturday, May 20, 2011

Conservation Garden Park @
Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District
8215 South 13oo West
West Jordan, Utah
10:00- 11:00 am



Finally! A landscape design class that helps you move BEYOND idealized design and into the realm of functional planning.  While we’d all love to be able to do a full landscape rennovation, for most of us, we need to do things as the budget allows.  Come and learn how to get the most bang for your buck by learning to designe or redesign your landscape to be implemented in series of phases that will function together as a whole.  Eventually anyway!
