WaterWise Landscape Tour

WaterWise Landscape Tour
Saturday, October 20, 2018
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The WaterWise Landscape Tour is a FREE, self-guided event that's open to the public. Explore six Plano yards and the Environmental Education Center’s demonstration gardens on Saturday, October 20, between 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. These beautiful, sustainable landscapes thrived in the summer heat. You’ll discover attractive, drought-tolerant plants and other interesting features, like a pollinator’s oasis, an aviary and more. The featured yards are at various stages of maturity and each is unique. Their owners look forward to sharing their stories, experiences and best practices, as do the enthusiastic volunteers who will be present to answer your questions.

Tour at your own pace, and visit as many or as few locations as you’d like. Visit Tour Headquarters, the Environmental Education Center, for a FREE Live Green in Plano garden kneeling pad, soil moisture meter and more while supplies last. Tour Headquarters is also our “Ask the Expert” area, where local experts will provide FREE consultations on landscape design, plant selection, efficient irrigation and composting. Registration is not required, and transportation is not provided. See below for a tour map and other resources.

We’re always on the lookout for beautiful, sustainable Plano landscapes to showcase, but we need your eyes too. Want to nominate a yard to be considered for future WaterWise Landscape Tours? Contact Katie Masucci at katiem@plano.gov. Any yard that incorporates water-saving features is a contender. These include native and adapted plants, reduced turf, pollinator gardens, inviting patios, rainwater harvesting, efficient irrigation and more. Contact Katie with any questions.
