“Fusion Landscaping is a style of gardening that looks attractive and colourful but has more environmental benefits than traditional methods,” says Carol Chaput, Supervisor, Environmental Education. “The intense heat and little rain over the last weeks is no match for this type of landscaping” adds Chaput. “With little to no watering, Fusion Gardens do well in drought-like conditions where typical grass lawns are brown and dry.”
Consultations are a great way for new gardeners to learn more about Fusion Landscaping. Advanced gardeners can also benefit by adding some fusion to their garden by choosing bright perennials and native trees and shrubs for height and texture.
Landscape consultations involve booking a session with a trained advisor who will assess your outdoor space and provide the tools needed to help you choose and plant appropriate flowers, plants, trees and shrubs. To sign up, call 905-791-7800, ext. 4409 or visit watersmartpeel.ca
