Spring is in full bloom and your landscape should be, too. With our free May garden class offerings, SCV Water will teach you how to cultivate a thriving landscape with proper plant care and by selecting the right perennials that will add charm to your landscape for years to come.
You’ve selected the plants – check! You’ve installed the plants in your landscape – double- check! But how do you care for them? Join us Thursday, May 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to learn about Caring for the Top 30 Plants for the SCV. Participants will learn maintenance techniques of the top 30 plants for the SCV (and others) so that they’ll thrive in our climate.
Want to find beauty in your yard year after year? Join us Saturday, May 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to learn how to Landscape with Perennials. These are plants that live two or more years and are well suited for the SCV climate. Participants will receive a list of perennials that can help spice up their landscape with texture and pops of color.
All classes are held at SCV Water, located at: 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita.
