Drought Tolerant & Sustainable Landscaping

The importance of water conservation goes beyond meeting the restrictions placed by our local and state water agencies. We must take measures to ensure that we are not only consuming wisely and with moderation, but carrying these practices well into the future. We can convert your existing landscape into a drought-tolerant one, or create a new sustainable garden or outdoor area for you to enjoy.


Tips For Sustainable Practices

Update your watering system — have it professionally evaluated for maximum efficiency. Weather-based "Smart Controllers" are an excellent choice to ensure that you are using water wisely.

Retrofit your irrigation system to a drip line or low-flow rotating spray heads. When professionally installed, these are extremely efficient and will deliver water much more precisely.

Remove all or part of your water-thirsty lawn and consider replacing it with drought-tolerant ground cover, or creating a natural meadow using evergreen ornamental grasses, native iris & other wildflowers. Decomposed granite and gravel make excellent pathways and further reduce water consumption.

Use permeable hardscape surfaces wherever possible, allowing rainwater and irrigation runoff to seep back into the water table.

Make use of bio swales and dry creek beds for rainwater capture.  We can integrate them into your garden in a beautiful and meaningful way. This is also a good solution for areas that do not drain well. It gives the water a place under the surface to sit while it percolates back into the water table.

Use plants from the 5 Mediterranean areas of the world. Your garden doesn’t have to look like the desert to be low water use! We have developed a lovely selection of low-water-use plants that are colorful, produce flowers, and are evergreen.

Use Succulents — extremely low maintenance with very low water needs.

Keep your plants well mulched with 2–4" of organic matter.

Devote a portion of your yard to fruit and nut trees, vegetable production, and/or herbs. You will delight at the ease with which you can supply your family with healthy, fresh foods.
