Neighborhood Fairs

GVST will come to your neighborhood for a Saturday morning Neighborhood Landscape Fair, presented in partnership with San Antonio Water System.

We bring lots of information about watersaving landscaping and gardening, drought-tolerant plants and latest rebate and coupon programs offered by SAWS.  Other activities are often offered, such as “Ask the Expert”, tool sharpening and, based on availability, drought-tolerant plant sales.

Neighborhood Landscape Fairs are coordinated through Homeowner, Neighborhood and Property Owner Associations.
