March is all about spring. We “spring” forward with daylight savings time March 8, and the first day of spring is March 19. March is also a great month to start thinking about preparing your landscape so it will blossom. Let SCV Water help you get started with our free March class offerings.
Not sure what plants to use in your landscape? We’ve taken out the guess work by identifying the top 30 plants that look beautiful and grow well in the SCV. Join us Thursday, March 19 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. to learn about the Top 30 Plants for the SCV. They’ll make a great addition to your landscape. Participants will leave with a full-color plant guide and (hopefully) a few new favorite plants.
Ready to reimagine your landscape? Start with a plan! Join us Saturday, March 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for our class: Planning Your Landscape Project: Design to Construction. Participants will learn the components needed to develop a project scope, and create your own landscape design and budget.
All classes are held at SCV Water, located at 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita.
