Southlake Hosts Newcomer’s Guide to Gardening in North Texas Workshop

The City of Southlake is proud to partner with Texas A&M AgriLife and Tarrant Regional Water District to bring the Newcomer’s Guide to Gardening in North Texas workshop this coming February 23.

Are you new to Southlake or the North Texas area? Or perhaps you are just new to growing plants in general! Join us at the Newcomer’s Guide to Gardening in North Texas workshop to learn about topics like native and adaptive plants for our area, landscape design, herbicide application, drip irrigation, rainwater harvesting, composting and more!

This informative seminar provides newcomers with a foundation to help grow a sustainable, lush and healthy lawn. Learn best practices and tips to tackle the challenges for the unique climate and soils of North Texas. Whether you’re an amateur lawn whisperer or a garden guru, we’ve got you covered.

The cost to register is $5.00, but includes a water conservation toolkit and many other giveaways. Participants will also receive their own handbook and other handy education materials to keep landscapes and gardens in great shape. To register for the event, please visit:
