Landscaping and Irrigation Workshops

Town of Queen Creek Logo

Each spring and fall, the Water Conservation Office offers classes designed to help residents learn how to use water more efficiently and still have a lush, beautiful looking yard.

This fall, the City of Chandler and Town of Queen Creek are partnering to offer a variety of virtual training workshops that will aid customers in cultivating landscapes that are water-wise, beautiful and low-maintenance. Each workshop is taught by an expert in their field.

Each class will be approximately 60 – 90 minutes long and will include time for Q & A’s. All workshops/classes are free of charge to Chandler utility customers, but advanced registration is required. Once registered, you will receive reminders and links to helpful handouts for each class.

Class listings, locations and links to online registration forms are found below. For more information, contact the Water Conservation Office.
