Keeping the yard and garden lush and green through the hottest months of summer is no easy task. In fact, it seems as if it’s becoming more difficult, more expensive, and potentially fraught with environmental concerns each year.

Fortunately, from adding native plants to putting creative water reuse strategies to work, many of the best solutions for managing a thirsty landscape are also better practices for the planet.

Join for our kickoff Ask a Pro event. We’re bringing together a panel of experts to answer your biggest questions and provide actionable strategies for keeping your yard healthy… and your sanity in check!
