Carrollton’s Newest Water Conservation Garden To Be Completed in MarchThe City’s first Water Conservation Garden is completed and located at the Don Cline Pump Station (2150 Old Denton Road). Construction on the City’s primary garden, situated between the Josey Ranch Library (1700 Keller Springs Road) and Carrollton Senior Center (1720 Keller Springs Road), will be completed in March. The Gardens are funded by a Department of Energy (DOE) Water Conservation Education grant to promote indoor and outdoor water and energy conservation. It is estimated, through education, the amount of water used at a residence for irrigation can be reduced by 20-30%. The City aims to achieve this goal by 2020. The installation of water conservation gardens will allow residents hands-on explanations for improving their home landscape.
The Gardens will use water-conserving plants, the most recent irrigation efficient technology, LED lighting, improved soil quality and mulch. The development of the Gardens is a a public-private partnership, led by the City of Carrollton Public Works and Parks and Recreation departments, in cooperation with local contractors and The Home Depot’s Carrollton location.
The Gardens will host educational programs for children and adults with a focus on effective water and energy conservation practices. In addition, educational programs for professionals will be led by subject matter experts to promote new installations, and improved existing installations. For more information, call 972-466-3425.
