Start the spring gardening season at YardSmart. Join local experts and learn about best practices of efficient landscapes and much more.

YardSmart is a free, informative conference designed to provide effective, beneficial ways to use water wisely in the landscape. Topics vary by year and include information about lawns, trees, landscapes, flower and vegetable gardening. Each session will help you maintain a healthy and beautiful landscape more efficiently with less water.

Attendees interested in participating in our 25-minute individual consultations can register at the Consultation Station the day of the event. Participants are asked to bring all necessary information (aerial views, measurements, cardinal directions, and more) about their landscape or garden project to the consultation. This will allow consultants to offer a more complete advice.

The 25-minute consultations will take place on the following time periods. Depending on the availability of experts, each time period can host up to four individual consultations:

  • 9:40 – 10:05 a.m.
