Water availability and usage are concerns all across the country; many areas now have strict watering restrictions. Tucson, Arizona, is on the cutting edge of water conservation issues and it better be, it's in the desert receiving an average of 12 inches of rainfall each year. GARDENSMART visits a community development that addresses water issues and plants that promote/blend with the existing environment. We're on hand as an eco-friendly irrigation system is installed and native plants incorporated into a new landscape. Lessons for everyone with a garden or plants, no matter how much water is available in your area.
