Ecologically Aware Landscaping

Despite the wet spring, many people are making the decision to give up green lawns
and trimmed hedges for the new fashion of native plant species, wild grasses and
the muted colors and rich textures inspired by native vegetation and requiring
much less watering. Whether your garden is a contained space or a yard, you can take
a more ecologically aware approach and have an attractive garden with much less
work.

The California Native Plant Society site will show you how to remove your lawn,
discover which plants will grow in your exact location, and alert you to workshops,
plant sales, and field trips. https://www.cnps.org/gardening

The Calscape Garden Planner will allow you to enter your zip code and style and
give you a perfect plant list of recommendations suited to your location.
