The "At Home in Carolina" Water Wise Garden is available to the public as an important tool in water conservation. Sponsored by PWC, the Cape Fear Botanical Garden and Urban & Community Forestry Program, the project was developed to be a tool to demonstrate water wise gardening techniques in our region.
Water wise gardening is quality gardening that uses water efficiently without sacrificing beauty or function. The garden was designed by Little & Little Landscape Architecture/Planning of Raleigh.
Throughout the season, the staff of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden will provide scheduled tours of the garden, describing techniques and plant selection. Literature on water wise gardening will also be available. The water wise garden is located behind the farmhouse that is currently under renovation at the Garden off of 301 North.
