Wise Water Use and Lawn Care Events – Spring 2016

This spring, the City of Soutlake will be focused on promoting wise water use in and outside your home.

This March and April 2016, the City of Southlake is promoting several events that encourage wise water use and conservation inside and outside your home. The lists of events include:

“Fix a Leak” Week (March 14-20): This annual event aims to empower individuals to take control of water use in their homes by identifying and fixing common sources of water leaks. Beginning the week of March 14, a display will be in the lobby of Town Hall that shows helpful tips on identifying and fixing common household leaks. In addition, there will be several free items at tables near the display that will help you identify leaks, save water and save money.

The “Get to Know Your H2O” Forum (March 29): The conversation about water doesn’t stop once Fix a Leak Week is over. Join us March 29, 2016 at 6:00PM for the “Getting to Know Your H2O” forum to be held in the City Council Chambers of Town Hall. Come to the event and engage experts in a discussion about water use and conservation and hang around the lobby and learn what you can do to take control of your water use all year ’round.

Texas SmartScape™ Plant Sale (April 23): Searching for the best candidates for your landscape? Texas SmartScape™ will help you identify native or adaptive plants that can thrive with less water. This means you can save money and still have a beautiful yard. Go to the Southlake Home Depot at 300 S. Village Center Drive from 8:00am to 12:00pm on April 23rd to get ideas and tips for landscaping by talking with a master gardener, plant expert, or irrigation specialist.

Learn and Grow @ Bob Jones Nature Center (April 30): This free workshop at the Bob Jones Nature Center is all about lawn care. Speaker Dr. Dotty Woodson from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension will discuss lawn care maintenance, the benefits of native and adaptive plants, and sprinkler system quick fixes. Space is limited for this workshop. RSVP with Leigh Langford at 817-491-6333 or llangford@bjnc.org.

Take control of your water use and come join us in March and April for any or all of these events!
