Water District Helps Plant the Seed

October 23, 1987

Whether you're already pulling up petunias or just looking to trim your water bills, the Municipal Water District of Orange County offers a good brochure on xeriscape.

In simple, concise terms--and with extensive visual aids--it provides answers to questions ranging from how to target water waste to the what, wheres and hows of planting a xeriscape garden.

For those interested in further reading, a list of books is included. For those who would like a closer look at xeriscaping, there also is a list of places to visit.

And for those who may be tired of Parcheesi, or bored with Trivial Pursuit, there is a xeriscape game, to be played, appropriately enough, with pennies.

To request the free brochure, call Fred Adjarian at the water district at (714) 973-1023. Adjarian also can supply names of qualified professionals who design xeriscapes, and nurseries that offer wide selections of drought-tolerant plants.
