Sustainable Landscape Series

Each year, the water conservation division hosts seminars with a variety of landscape topics geared for the adult resident of Allen. These are normally held in the early spring. The speakers vary with the topics, however, all speakers are professionals with several years of education and experience. The topics are selected by relevance for north Texas growing conditions. They cover the best management practices and plant selection for lawns, trees, vegetable and fruit gardening, shrubs, ground covers, annuals and perennials, as well as education on the landscape sprinkler system. All the seminars are designed to give the resident successful and sustainable gardening practices using less resources. All 2019 classes require registration before attending.
