Last Updated: 2/11/2015

Mark your calendars to join the 2015 Roseville Greener Gardens Tour and DIY Expo on Saturday, May 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The self-guided tour begins at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center and features local gardens that showcase some of the region’s best examples of sustainable living. Gardens are selected for their efficient water use and participation in Roseville's Cash for Grass rebate Program.

Before you head out on the tour, check out the free Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Expo. The expo will offer a wealth of information on how to turn your lawn into a lush, water-sipping garden. On hand, you’ll find green gardening professionals, University of California Master Gardeners, and other industry experts. Displays will include UC Davis Arboretum All-Star plants, the Greener Gardens photo gallery, and exhibitors featuring water-wise products. There will also be demonstrations on irrigation, composting, sheet mulching, and more. The DIY Expo is free, and cost for the Greener Gardens Tour is just $5 per family.
