We are pleased to announce we are adding the Edwards Aquifer Authority as a title sponsor for this season. They will join the Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District, who helped us get this water-saving video series off the ground two years ago.


Episode 3 kicks off at one of Go Gardening's favorite places to visit...Rainbow Gardens on Bandera Road. Spring is also a great time to visit because the nursery is overflowing with plant selections. In this episode, we talked with Haeley Giambalvo with the Native Plants Society. They just finished creating a native plants bed complete with informative signs about all of the featured plants. The beautiful new plant bed sits in full sun, so the plants featured there are ready for use in your landscape's sunny spots. Then Robin from Rainbow Gardens showed us another whole grouping of native plants that are a part of the SAWS Coupon Program. Mark and Robin went on a shopping spree gathering up 15 plants that favor the shade and would qualify for $100 rebate from SAWS.

Next we drove over to Bart Kelly's residence near the Medical Center. Bart has created a beautiful backyard featuring native plants in containers. In fact, in the near future, all of his plants will be in pots/containers. You need to watch this segment to learn why he's making this transition and how he created this stunningly colorful and pollinator friendly yard that he and his family enjoy every day.

Finally, Mark Peterson shares some thoughts about winter grasses that just seem to pop up in yards. Is it grass, are they weeds, what should we do about them? Mark's new "Maintenance Minute" provides all the answers.


These were fun segments to put together and a special thanks goes out to our knowledgeable and dynamic Go Gardening host Mark Peterson.


Go Gardening's mission is to help people conserve water in the Edwards and Trinity Aquifers by teaching homeowners how to convert turfgrass areas to low-to-no water use landscapes featuring native plants.
