Water-Saving Landscapes Seminar June 8

Georgia landscapes face the dusty return of drought period virtually every summer. If you're leery of watering bans or weary of scorched landscapes, an upcoming University of Georgia seminar may provide some answers.

Learn the principles of designing, installing and managing your own xeriscape garden in a David Dunagan seminar June 8 in Griffin, Ga.

Dunagan is a water conservation specialist with Fulton County and a board member of the Georgia Water Wise Council. Besides the latest on saving water, a how-to booklet that includes a list of drought-tolerant plants will be provided.

The seminar is free. It will be at the Georgia Experiment Station in Griffin. To learn more about it, call Susan Varlamoff at (770) 229-3367.
