The Utah Rivers Council and Wasatch Community Gardens will hold a "Rip Your Strip" event Saturday to demonstrate techniques to reduce water use by converting grass-covered lawn strips.

Utah Rivers Council spokesman Mark Danenhauer said right now is a great time for residents to plan landscaping projects.

Danenhauer said that residents can apply for a grant through the Utah Rivers Council Web site at www.utahrivers.org. Grants of $50 to $200 are available to offset expenses.

Saturday's demonstration will be held at 600 E. 800 South, starting at 10:30 a.m.
