DON’T LET YOUR YARD CONTROL YOUR WATER BILL

In our class we will be covering topics including using proper techniques to create an attractive landscape to daily maintenance and irrigation while benefiting the environment. The list of benefits are many: using less water = lower water bills; conserving natural resources; providing natural habitat for plants, wildlife and pollinators; decreasing air pollution by reducing the pumping and treatment of required water; reduce home and office heating and cooling cost through proper selection and placement of shade trees and shrubs; reduction of runoff which carries top soils, fertilizers and pesticides into our lakes, rivers and streams; fewer yard trimmings to be managed or landfilled; reduced landscaping labor and maintenance costs.
We will send you home with ideas and handouts as resources. A representative from the City of Lodi will be present to answer questions you may have which is specific for city residents.
