with the added drought restrictions by our water companies, Purissima Hills Water District and Cal Water, to conserve more water, transitioning from lawn to a native landscape deserves more than our consideration. These water companies do provide rebates.
Other benefits of native plants that you didn't know, but you're gonna love, include:
providing fire resilience (Phew)
less maintenance (Yay!)
rebates (see below)

The planting season is now! Winter is the best time to establish native plants that will carry you through into the fall.
