Come learn how to make a plan for a xeric shrub and flower border. Susan will discuss the attributes of successful xeric borders, making a plan to include site and use analysis, creating a scale drawing of the site and choosing plants that can weather our challenging climate.

What could be more appropriate for our climate; especially during this current drought? Come out and learn how to fine-turn your beds and borders to be more waterwise.

The life-giving properties of water have always fascinated Susan McLean. She has over 15 years of experience designing water-wise landscapes in El Paso and Douglas Counties and now works as Donala Water and Sanitation Water Conservation Manager.
