10. Water Wise and Whimsical: Front and Back Gardens

10. Water Wise and Whimsical: Front and Back Gardens

This homeowner dove right in to low-water tactics taught in a community workshop. A patchy front lawn has transformed into a cool green oasis of tumbled river stone and shade-loving native plants – a perfect accompaniment to the musical metal sculpture that overlooks the new rain garden. In the backyard, a dying tree and soggy lawn were removed in favor of bountiful beds, art aplenty, and faux turf that requires no water, chemicals, or mowing. A towering cottonwood saved from splitting by an arborist’s careful ministrations provides evening shade. Now that’s sustainable.

Highlights:

  • Front yard rain garden
  • Backyard artificial turf
  • Low maintenance landscape
  • Garden art
  • Ollas-style irrigation pots
  • Rain barrel
  • Heat pump

Activities:
  • Naturescaping mini-workshop with the City of Springfield and the McKenzie Watershed Council at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.


*Please do not visit the sites before 10 a.m. on Sunday.
