Yard Tours

Watersaver Landscape Tour

Take a FREE tour of 6 beautiful yards that are easy on the water bill.


Saturday, April 7

9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Better yet, if you are among the first 200 to visit all 6 yards, you will qualify for a $50 coupon to Stone and Soil or Milberger’s, thanks to one of our sponsors, Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District. Get your card punched at each location, turn in your card and Trinity Glen Rose will mail you the coupon.

The tour, one of our biggest annual events, showcases impressive yards that don’t require lots of water to remain beautiful.  This year’s yards are:


Bluffview Estates Neighborhood

Vance Jackson Neighborhood

Whispering Oaks Neighborhood

Keep checking back as we add new yards each week!

Yards were selected using the following criteria:

  • Yards with a 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.
  • Of the non-grass landscape area, plants cover at least 50 percent.
  • Borders between the water-saving landscape and other areas must be planned and maintained.

This free event started in 2002, in partnership with the San Antonio Water System and sponsored by the San Antonio River Authority, and now, Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District.  It supports our mission to promote outdoor water conservation through educational outreach within the Bexar County communities.
