DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING INFORMATION

Did you know that approximately 40 to 80 percent of water use goes toward irrigation of outdoor landscapes?  Our Mediterranean-like climate offers a great opportunity to utilize long established landscaping choices to reduce water use and still create a comfortable retreat.  This page contains information to assist our residents with the installation of California native or drought-tolerant landscapes.

 

MWD GARDEN SPOT

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) offers information on sustainable landscapes, local plant nurseries, and gardening tips through its Garden Spot webpage: www.bewaterwise.com/gardenspot.shtml.  Visitors may also take online classes that cover a range of material from gardening basics to in-depth tutorials, and can be accessed by clicking on the California Friendly Garden picture below.

LIFE FILMS

FMWD is proud to co-sponsor Landscape Integrity Films and Education (LIFE) and their video tutorials that showcase native gardening.  LIFE supports a shift to appropriate landscaping practices that reduce water and energy consumption and support biodiversity.

LOCAL COMMUNITY GROUPS & NURSERIES

Many community groups and nurseries within the FMWD service area offer landscaping outreach, education, and other resources to local residents.  A sample collection of these organizations are provided below.
