Surviving the Drought

LAWN BE GONE

THE PROBLEM


TEXT




BACKGROUND


More than half of California’s residential water is used for landscaping. Replacing lawn with drought tolerant plants in your yard can make a big impact on your water usage. Native plants are not only drought tolerant, but they are low maintenance and beneficial to wildlife. Unlike lawns, native plant landscapes create biodiversity which attracts good bugs and birds. Native plants also contribute to healthier creeks as they require no fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, which are top polluters to creeks.

GRAYWATER

THE PROBLEM


With demand for water exceeding the supply in California, we need to look for additional sources of water. Greywater in one solution. Greywater is gently used water from your bathroom sinks, showers, tubs and washing machines. Although it contains some soap and detergents, it’s a safe water supply for most landscapes. A greywater system can save water, money and time.
