Center for Water Efficient Landscaping Demonstration Garden and Research Plots
The Greenville Farm research plots are the home for much of the research that is conducted for water efficient landscaping. The goals of this research are numerous and varied. They seek to answer the questions about low water landscaping, not only for the homeowner but for the green industry in general. The green industry needs to support this effort for it to be successful. When research address the questions in this new and exciting field, the nurseryman, landscape designers, landscape contractor and the landscape maintenance contractor can have the tools they need to bring this much needed approach to fruition.
