Central Utah Gardens have been created to demonstrate and encourage the wise use of water in Utah landscapes. The average home owner uses 60% of their water to irrigate lawns and gardens. The good news is, this water use can be greatly reduced without sacrificing the beauty of your landscape. In fact, water-efficient landscapes often turn out to be more colorful, more interesting, and more diverse than traditional landscapes.

-At the gardens and in our series of classes you will learn the 7 steps of water-efficient landscaping , also known as waterwise landscaping. Often, when people think of saving water in a landscape, they picture a yard full of rock, cactus, and yucca plants. 

  This simply isn’t true! Water-efficient landscapes can be anything from an English cottage garden style to a formal garden to a southwest garden style. The key is to follow the seven water-efficient landscaping steps that help you use water wisely in your Utah landscape.
