Be Waterwise – Visit The Turf Removal Workshop And Waterwise Expo To Save Time And Money On Your Landscape

Workshop at Mesa Water® on March 11 with EXPO to follow at Home Depot on April 15

Costa Mesa, Calif. – Mesa Water District is hosting two spring events to help customers and the community garden better, save time, water and money, and reduce overall yard maintenance.

The DIY turf removal workshop includes tips on native, drought-tolerant and low maintenance plants, watering tools such as smart sprinkler timers and drip irrigation, and on-site water retention methods such as bioswales and mulch. Taking action in your garden will help make your landscape more efficient and save time, money and water.

Rebates also remain available for turf removal in Orange County, and for smart sprinkler timers, rain barrels, efficient sprinkler nozzles and moisture sensors throughout Southern California.

Mesa Water’s customers have continued the practice of wise water use after the State’s mandatory drought conservation goal of 20 percent was met in early 2016. The following events can help you continue your water efficiency practices and save time on landscaping:
