Water Saving Garden

Everyone wants to save water but you may think it is hard to do and still have a great lawn and garden. GardenTime TV stopped by the newest water efficient garden to learn how we can do both. 

The demonstration garden at the Tualatin Valley Water District has some great examples for you to follow if you are looking to reach a water saving goal.

Steve from TVWD gave Judy a tour of the demo garden.  We started at the kiosk at the front of the main office to pick up some free ‘take home’ material about water saving.

This kiosk also helps explain how to reach the 1-inch-a-week goal of watering your lawn. It also talks about different types of plants and how the garden is designed. The garden has some modified lawn areas, some ‘native’ plantings and even some great ‘mixed-plant’ areas where you can mix natives with other ornamental plants to achieve a great garden!

If you are looking for ideas on how to save water and still have a garden the neighbors will envy, check out the TVWD garden, or check out the wonderful tips at the Regional Water Providers Consortium website.
