Don’t lose money on inappropriate plant material and overwatering. Austin Water and Grow Green have partnered with the Austin Public Library to offer Sunlight Calculators to library customers through the library check-out system. Use the Sunlight Calculator to measure the amount of light each area of your yard receives. Then use the included plant guide (also available at www.GrowGreen.org) to select plants that best fit the light conditions of a particular area. Plants in Partial Shade and Full Shade may require less water than those in Full Sun and Partial Sun so adjust irrigation to those areas accordingly making sure to follow the current watering restrictions.
