A Presentation By Shelkie Tao


Many people understand the importance of conserving water and converting their lawns to water efficient gardens, but often balk at the perceived complexity, cost, and time commitments of such conversion.  There is a "knowledge gap" here - how to put in that great landscape after the turf is removed.   This presentation will illustrate, with two actual projects, that building a water efficient garden can be easy, quick, and cost-effective.  When more and more conversions are done like this, the knowledge gap might be gradually closed, and more water efficient gardens will be built.
