Dallas Water Utilities this weekend presents the 17th annual Water-Wise Landscape Tour, which highlights 22 landscapes heavy on native Texas plants that go light on water use.

The self-guided tour takes place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., June 4. The water department will set up three base points — at which 30-minute “MicroTalks” on water-wise techniques will occur every hour on the hour — the closest of which is the White Rock Pump Station.

The first 100 people to attend the MicroTalks receive a free hose nozzle.

Pump house talks, starting at 9 a.m., include Water-Wise Gardening, Creating a Rose Garden, Rain Barrels 101, Soil Preparation, Butterfly Gardening, and Soil Preparation again.

The list of stops and tour headquarters, along with associated maps, can be found online.

Oh, and the whole thing is free.
