Landscape Retrofit Classes

Posted 1/4/2010

Learn how to convert your water-guzzling, water-wasting yards into less thirsty, water efficient, energy saving and attractive landscapes through University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s landscape retrofit classes. You will be coached through the design process, creating your own design for building a new or redesigning an old landscape. Over 500 Las Vegas residents have completed the classes with outstanding results; some have been presented landscape design awards.

The eight-week class begins on February 1 and continues each Monday morning from 9 a.m. to Noon through March 22 at the Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas. Class size is limited and there is a $50 fee per landscape. (The fee is waived if associated with the Master Gardener program.)

For more information, please contact either the Master Gardener Help line at 257-5555, Bob Morris at morrisr@unce.unr.edu , or the instructor, Mel Hengen, at mojavemel@aol.com .
