Are you worried about how much water you are using in your landscape?

Up to 70% of household water use goes to outdoor use - that is a lot!

The GOOD news is that you can have a beautiful outdoor space that uses less water!

Water is a precious resource and it's more important now than ever to use it wisely with water supplies shrinking.

Most people over-water their existing plants, leading to a higher water bill, and isn't always good for your plants.

Do you wish you knew how to reduce the water use in your garden?

Perhaps this sounds like you...

  • You want an attractive landscape but are worried about how much water you are using.
  • News of potential water restrictions leaves you worried and overwhelmed.
  • You want to do your part to save water around your home.
  • You're looking for actionable steps you can take right away to use less water in your garden.

Pleasure to meet you!

Hi! I'm Noelle Johnson.

  • You may know me better as 'AZ Plant Lady', horticulturist, landscape consultant, and author of the book, Dry Climate Gardening.
  • I've built a successful career as an author and landscape consultant where I help people like you learn how to garden in a challenging climate.
  • But, I didn't always know how to garden in the desert - there is a long trail of dead plants in my past to prove it. I killed just about everything I planted. However, I knew there had to be a way to learn how, and I was determined to figure it out.
  • After learning my degree in horticulture and a 25+ year career, I have been helping desert dwellers learn how to successfully create their own landscape in a hot, dry climate while saving water.
  • Since then, I've worked with the Associated Press, Houzz, NPR, PBS, Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine, RealSimple magazine, and Water Use It Wisely to help people like you garden in the desert.

IMAGINE if you knew how...

  • What plants need less water than others
  • Cultural practices to help plants use water more efficiently
  • What irrigation methods work best and which are most inefficient
  • How often to water your plants

You can save water AND have an attractive landscape filled with plants that thrive in a dry climate.

This the online class people have been asking me for, and it's finally here!

Here is what others are saying about this workshop...

I learned so much from this class! Most importantly, the biggest problem was high water & low water usage plants on the same irrigation schedule.
