"I will hopefully help them maintain a garden with a drought problem," said Schleihauf.
Using perennials will also be discussed in Schleihauf's April 14 session, where she will introduce attendees to drought-resistant perennials as well as the perennial of the year.
The April 21 session will feature water gardens. Jeff Baarschers of Degroot's Nurseries will cover planning, design materials, plants and fish that can be used in water landscape design.
"The focus will be planning and knowledge. Doing things right the first time ends up saving people money in the end," said Baarschers.
The last instalment of the gardening series will be held on April 28. Cynthia Cook of Forest Glen Herb Farm will talk about fragrant herbs. The hands-on session will give participants the chance to make their own bouquet from sprigs of dry flowers and fragrant herbs.
The gardening series is $40 for the entire series or $12 per session. All sessions will be held at the Lawrence House.
