Turn your lawn into a water-conserving landscape

By on Mon, April 27, 2009


The Coastside Land Trust is sponsoring a series of summer classes through Half Moon Bay Parks and Recreation called "How to Turn Your Lawn into a Water-Conserving Landscape." Led by local experts, each class of the four classes will meet from 9am to 4pm, with a mixture of class time and on-site landscape design and planting. The four classes will cover site analysis, design , plant selection, and planting. The cost of the course is $70 per class, or $240 for all four. Registration information is in Parks and Recreation’s Summer Activity Guide [click to download].

Now we need a nice lawn to work on! We’re looking for a property on a well-traveled street from Montara to Half Moon Bay where the class would provide the labor and expertise, and the homeowner would pay for the materials (costs dependent on the size of the lawn) and could participate in the class for free. We would place a small sign on the property for a few months mentioning that the landscaping was provided by the Coastside Land Trust’s Lawns to Water-Conserving Landscape Class, listing our website for information on upcoming classes.
