Thinking about redoing your yard? Looking for ideas for a more efficient sprinkler system?

Take a tour of Sacramento Suburban Water District’s (SSWD’s) Antelope Gardens or their other new demonstration gardens: the Garden on Eden and the Gardens at Howe Park to find some inspiration.

Discover how to create a rain garden that will replenish groundwater instead of sending it into streets, learn how to make an edible oasis that can provide herbs and fruits for your table or design a habitat for butterflies, birds and bees. And best of all, they’re all free.

SSWD’s demonstration gardens contain hundreds of species of plants, California native and low-water non-native, the latest in water-efficient sprinkler systems and a variety of landscape designs. The demonstration gardens all feature informational signage that identifies the plants, irrigation and layouts used so that visitors can learn how to create their own water-wise oasis.
