SUMMIT COUNTY – Conserving water and having attractive landscaping needn’t be mutually exclusive.

Tom Vitalone, owner of High Country Irrigation and Landscaping, is leading a workshop today on water conservation and landscaping from 7 to 8 p.m. at Borders Books Cafe in Dillon.

There are a few key ingredients to creating a beautiful landscape or garden while also conserving water, Vitalone said. It just takes a little bit of planning, maintenance and the right plants.

Vitalone will discuss how and when to water to provide the most moisture for your plants while limiting the possibility for waste. He’ll also cover how to amend your soil to prevent run-off and increase drainage and absorption and the plants that are most ideal for Summit County’s harsh and arid environment.

The workshop is one of a series presented by the Summit County Women’s Center. It is free, and registration is not required. Borders will provide storytelling and activities for participants’ children. The Summit County Garden Club is sponsoring today’s workshop.
