LOOK FOR THE CA FRIENDLY TAG TO FIND WATER-SAVING PLANTS
WHAT IS CA FRIENDLY?
It is a garden that “fits” Southern California. It is a garden that does not rely on excessive artificial support, like copious amounts of water, nutrition or even a gardener’s time and energy. In turn, a California Friendly garden is one that works with the environment around it; not polluting, contributing excessive waste or spreading invasive plants.
A true California Friendly garden minimizes negative impacts on our environment and resources and maximizes the positive ones. It thrives on rainwater and it keeps plant clippings and greenwaste on site. It requires a minimum amount of products, time, money and resources to sustain it. In return, it provides food and habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
