Spring Into Gardening Season with SAWS

The month of March officially launches gardening season in San Antonio — and SAWS is ready to help you get off to a great start with our virtual “Spring Into Gardening” webinar series, Saturday, March 12.


Whether you’re a newbie or have a glistening green thumb, these interactive online discussions will help you begin a gorgeous garden upgrade to a landscape with less thirsty lawn and more drought-hardy plants.

Starting at 10 a.m., there will be three 45-minute webinars with a break in between each.

Outdoor Transformation: Create Your Dream Landscape

You don’t have to be a gardening expert or wealthy to transform your bland landscape into one that’s colorful, attractive and water frugal.

This how-to session will cover the basics of pulling off a complete makeover for your yard while making the most of SAWS rebates, rewards and WaterSaver coupons (available March 1).

Pest Control: What To Know Before You Act

It’s not fun when unwanted pests invade our homes and gardens. But some solutions you can buy come with scary warning labels. Join our expert bug-ologist for a chat about the most common pest problems and the safest, most effective options for managing them.

Common Landscaping Mistakes To Avoid

Our panel of gardening experts will share the most common landscaping mistakes homeowners make — and how to steer clear of them. Plenty of “do this, not that” photos will help you see exactly how to set up your new landscape for long-term success.

Bonus: One of the webinars will feature the “big reveal” of an exciting new outdoor living rebate to deck out your backyard. You’ll have to join us to find out more…
