Water efficient landscaping is the ideal solution to fast depleting resources and California’s history of drought. Garden and lawn care account for a tremendous increase in demand especially during the summer months. The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) urges us to adopt water-wise, water-smart, low-water or water efficient landscaping to remedy the situation. Californians who practice sustainable landscaping and water management can easily avoid over-use penalties and reduce landscape maintenance cost.

  • Creative and colorful landscape designs that include compatible low-water use plants.
