Each year, Thornton Water hosts several free events to connect you with tools and resources to enhance water-efficiency in your yard, garden, and home. As always, we invite you to stroll through our Demonstration Gardens to see great examples of xeric gardens and get ideas for your own. And don’t forget to check out our online tips and downloadable resources. We hope to see you in the garden next year!
