CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities is set to host its “Next Generation Landscaping” workshop in early March. The event is free to the public, but prior registration is required.

The goal of the “Next Generation Landscaping” workshop is to raise awareness of Cheyenne’s limited water supply and the importance of using water more efficiently with landscaping. Presentations will include an overview of Cheyenne’s water supply, thoughts and observations on conversions to “native,” tree planting and post-planting care, tough trees for Cheyenne, and protecting trees during turf conversions. The event will wrap up with a panel discussion with the BOPU, the City of Cheyenne and local leaders.

Business owners who provide and support landscaping services in Cheyenne — including landscapers, lawn service, tree service, builders, developers and other community members — are strongly encouraged to attend the free event. The workshop will take place at 1 p.m. Tuesday, March 5 at the Kiwanis Community House, 4603 Lions Park Drive.

Registration is required and can be accessed on the BOPU website’s event page.
