Flip Your Strip

Updated for 2024!

Learn the best techniques to add curb appeal and save water by removing non-functional lawn and beautifying your landscape.

Lawn struggles to grow in park strips and wastes a lot of water. Flipping your park strip by removing the lawn and replacing it with waterwise plants, irrigation, and mulch is the solution. This on-demand class focuses on best practices to save water in your park strip through appropriate watering, plant selection, and planned maintenance.

If you plan to undertake a larger landscape project like a full yard or front/backyard project we also recommend taking Localscapes University.
