WaterSaver Walk

Looking for plants that grow best in San Antonio soils, the most efficient water users, good mulch, and materials to use for pathways that will still allow water to reach plants? Come and see! Explore our WaterSaver Garden and WaterSaver Lane (both are co-operative projects with the San Antonio Water System) with a Master Naturalist or a Master Gardener to learn the story of water and understand water-saving gardening in San Antonio.
The WaterSaver Garden demonstrates practical home gardening techniques that are the most water friendly, showcasing drip irrigation and “turf bubbler” watering techniques, samples of mulches and permeable paving surfaces, and plantings that perform well with San Antonio’s climate and water requirements. WaterSaver Lane features six cottages that demonstrate different types of drought-tolerant landscaping, including one showing what not to plant! Find a variety of landscapes that minimize lawn and include more groundcover, perennial flowerbeds and herbs, native and adapted plants, and patio space. *Sponsored by SAWS* 1 WaterSaver Reward point
Meet at 10 am at the Carriage House. Walk is free to members or with paid admission, but registration is required.
