The Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership has published a new guide for homeowners to help maintain a low water use landscape. The  “Water Smart Gardens Maintenance Manual” (Manual) is an easy-to-use, step-by-step instruction manual on how to care for and maintain the plants, drip irrigation systems, and green features offered in the Water Smart Landscape Design Templates which are free, open-source landscape plans.

The Manual will set home gardeners up for success with a foundation of knowledge and principles that reduce the need for resources and upkeep. The Manual includes a calendar of when to do what in the garden like when to weed and when to prune for plant health. Instructions on how and what to prune are also included along with irrigation system setup and programming.
