Santa Clarita Valley Water recently released its newest sustainable landscape resource – Garden Smarter. The new resource allows customers to learn about how to make the move to water-wise landscaping and sustainable gardening practices. Topics range from drought-tolerant planting and tree care to food gardening, fire-wise landscaping, and expert tips and guidance, as well as rebates and resources.
“The future of water use is focused on sustainability,” said Santa Clarita Valley Water Sustainability Manager Matt Dickens. “We want our customers to know that everyone can have a landscape that uses water effectively and efficiently without waste, and Garden Smarter shows them how.”
Also available are “dos and don’ts” tips for landscape renovation projects by landscape experts.
“Some people have lawns and landscapes, while others use container gardens in their apartments and townhomes,” said Santa Clarita Valley Water Conservation Specialist Julia Grothe. “In Garden Smarter, you can learn how to implement efficient water use practices that most benefit you. In turn, it will benefit our environment and promote sustainable landscapes.”
Garden Smarter is available in print and online, and in both English and Spanish.
Copies can be found at a local library, local nursery, or local irrigation supply house, as well as any community events Santa Clarita Valley Water attends. Garden Smarter is also available at SCV Water’s Customer Care office, located at 24631 Avenue Rockefeller, Santa Clarita, CA 91355, during business hours.
