On Monday, September 18 we welcome Zac Kregosky of Plants I Dig Landscaping and Consulting. Zac will talk about xeriscaping, the art of creating gardens and landscaping to minimize water use and maximize water efficiency. Xeri is the Greek word for dry. It’s many benefits include reduced water use-by over 50%, depending on the design and plants used; saving time- less watering, trimming, weeding and mowing; saving money- less chemicals, fertilizer and replacement of dead plants. Plants whose natural requirements are appropriate to the local climate are emphasized, and care is taken to avoid losing water to evaporation and run-off.
If you want your garden to give you maximum enjoyment and value for your expenditure of time and money, xeriscaping is the answer! Garden with the natural environmental conditions we live in rather than fighting against them. What a timely topic for the Comox Valley!
