What I like about my garden:

My garden reflects my varied interests. I like that it is water efficient while being more attractive than a lawn.

What people tell me about my garden:

Folks say it is beautiful, creative and attractive for our house.

What surprises people most about my water-wise landscaping:

That it is completely self- installed.

Saving water is important because…

…our state is water poor. It would be so helpful to our water supplies if every Californian tried to save some water every day!
