Landscape Webinars – Ventura

This series of webinars sponsored by California American Water, help you design, install, and manage your landscape using the Watershed Approach. The result is a gorgeous living space that functions as a healthy mini-watershed: sequestering atmospheric carbon, preventing water and air pollution, restoring the hydration and life of the soil, and attracting essential life into the garden. Making your landscape Watershed Wise is no more expensive or difficult than making any landscape; it just takes a little know-how and practice. In these webinars, you will learn about these four principles:

  1. Build Healthy Living Soil
  2. Capture Rainwater As A Resource
  3. Select Local, Climate-Appropriate Plants
  4. Use Highly Efficient Irrigation Only When Necessary
