Creating Shade for a Hot, Dry Climate

May 3 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Zoom Online class participants will receive a Zoom link for the class two hours before the class begins.

$30 Non-Member / $24 Member

Shade is a welcome presence in desert gardens – especially during hot summer months where it can reduce the temperatures around your home. Where you add shade is important and can have a positive impact on your energy bill. In this class, Noelle ‘AZ Plant Lady’ shows you how to create a beautiful, shady outdoor space, filled with attractive plants that thrive in shade and heat. You’ll enjoy more time outdoors in the shade, even in the summer.
