Gardening for Drought

June 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Create a drought-hardy landscape!

Join our free class to learn how!

North Texas summers can be a very harsh time to keep plants from drying out. Luckily, many of our native plants are drought-tolerant and accustomed to thriving with little water. Even non-drought tolerant plants can be helped by following smart watering strategies. Whether you want a yard full of plants or a lawn, choosing tough plants and knowing how to care for your landscape in a drought can help keep it lush, even in hard times.

Learn about:

  • The importance of water efficiency in a drought
  • Common gardening mistakes that lead to water loss
  • The basic principles of landscape design
  • The best drought-tolerant native plants for your garden
  • How to choose native turf for your lawn
  • How to keep your garden healthy in times of drought


The class will be 45 minutes long and taught by a Tarrant County Master Gardener.


This is a free event. No registration required.
