The weather in the SCV in December is usually crisp with plenty of warm sun. Now is a great time to do one of two things: set up a plan to maintain your landscape through the winter or make a big change for the new year – like removing your lawn in favor of more colorful and water-efficient alternatives!

SCV Water has two December gardening classes that will help you optimize your landscape, no matter your goal! Are you ready to take the next step to ditch your lawn? Learn the step-by-step process of How to Remove a Lawn on Saturday, December 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Participants will discover the best types of plants to replace grass. Do you want to leave a little grass in your landscape? We’ll cover best maintenance practices that can make it more drought-tolerant.

Your landscape has been established for a while now, but you want to keep it looking good. Join us Monday, December 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm. to learn effective methods to manage and Maintain a Sustainable Landscape. You’ll soon find out that sustainable and efficient can still be beautiful!
