Gated communities located in Sonterra will allow our virtual tours to view 10 distinct and beautiful examples of water saving landscaping. This tour will be part of the “Rewards Program” sponsored by SAWS,  with significant support from Trinity Glen Rose, and the San Antonio River Authority.

The tour, one of our biggest annual events, showcases impressive yards that do not require much water to remain beautiful. This year’s yards were selected using the following criteria:

• Substantial reduction in grass in the front or side yard

• Beds mulched with leaves, bark or stone

• A variety of plants appropriate to the soil and sunlight conditions

• In the non-grass landscape area, plants cover at least 50%

• Planned and maintained borders between water saving landscape and other areas

This free event began in 2002, in partnership with the San Antonio Water System, and sponsorship from the San Antonio River Authority. For the second year we welcome our newest sponsor Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District, whom also supports our mission to promote outdoor water conservation through educational outreach within Bexar County communities.

WaterSaver Landscape School Lite

Would you like to get some ideas on what to plant and where to plant it in your yard?  We have just the answer for you.  The WSLDS cannot be held in person so we are giving a lite version on October19.  The Gardening Essentials program is usually held on the third Monday of each month which would be October 19.  You may register for this program on our web site.  It is presented on Zoom from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.  There is no charge for this program.  If you have not done so, you will need to download Zoom to your computer, it is free. After you register, and before the program, you will receive the login information.

The program will be presented by Laura Rogers.  She has presented these programs in the past and is a lifetime gardener with memberships in several garden education groups.   As past president of GVST, a volunteer at the San Antonio Botanical Garden and a sixteen year member of the Bexar County Master Gardeners, she has shared her water conservation message to many in the San Antonio area.

October 19, 2020 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.
