Professor Robinson instructs irrigation workshop participants

Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, April 8, for a one-day workshop on Gardening in Small Places: understanding your irrigation. The class runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

With the spring season upon us, it’s time to start thinking of our landscapes again…including the often neglected irrigation. As your plants grow, and your landscape changes, your irrigation needs change, too. No one type of irrigation is good for all plants. When you have a variety of plants in your landscape, you need a varied irrigation to accommodate those plants. Hint… there is more than one type of drip irrigation.

If you’d like to have a better understanding of your irrigation system, or you want to make your system more efficient, then this class is for you. Proper irrigation can prevent water waste and help you save money.

Professor ML Robinson, environmental horticulturist, will help you discover the right type of irrigation for your landscape. The workshop, will cover different types of irrigation and how they are best used so you can figure out what would work best in your landscape. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited to 25 and pre-registration is required. There is a $10 fee per class which covers class materials.

To register for this class, held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.), email or call Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573. Register online at

Upcoming Gardening in Small Places workshop dates are May 20, solving garden problems; June 17, soils; and July 15, organic gardening.
