So Cal Gets Water-Wise!

With so many trees and lawns in Southern California, it is easy to forget we live in a desert. We import millions of gallons of water from the north, the Owens Valley, and the Colorado River, and pump millions more from regional aquifers. 

These recent years of drought have brought about a big change in Southern California.  In neighborhoods everywhere, builders and homeowners are turning to drought-tolerant landscaping and water-wise irrigation techniques to create beautiful and sustainable yards while protecting our precious water resources for future generations.


In today's market, many buyers are looking for low maintenance landscaping & properties featuring drip irrigation, native plants, and Xeriscaping instead of lush green lawns.
