3 Steps to a
Water Smart Garden
Step-by-step guide to a less costly way to convert your lawn.
Search low-water plant options. Native plants bring birds and butterflies.
Water only where you need it. Cut water use by 50% to 90%.

Added two sections of water smart plants. "I was tired of doing so much work. [Now] it's low maintenance."
Saves 12,000 gallons a year. "A beautiful, low-maintenance garden year round."
Only prunes and weeds once a month. "I love my garden and I don't have to mow!"
