The Water Utility Department has coordinated with Tarrant County Master Gardener Association to host a series of Texas SmartScape Classes. Whether you’re designing a garden for your new home or just adding a few new plants to your yard, Texas SmartScape can help. It gives you the tools you need to plan your garden, select the right plants, and care for them in a manner that saves you time and money. Planting and maintaining a Texas SmartScape also helps protect our streams and rivers and ultimately conserving our water resources.
Check our Water and Environment Classes page for upcoming classes. All classes are free to any Mansfield resident. Registration is required and seating is limited.
