Demonstration Garden - Oasis
Area Lead: Kimberli Tanner, John Huang
Description: The Oasis Garden was planted May 2008. This garden contains plants that require extra water on a regular basis. In a xeriscape, the oasis zone is generally placed closest to the house to take advantage of roof harvested rain water.
