California Native Plants
Why Go Native?
Many new homeowners find that there is so much more to lawn maintenance than simply mowing and watering your lawn. In today’s climate, you’ll find that a dry California means a dry landscape design and the work to combat the fire hazard that was your backyard will become increasingly more time consuming and expensive as water prices rocket. Native plants are a functional and attractive alternative for landscapers and homeowners alike who are looking to maintain beauty without sacrificing much effort. The natural beauty of California native plants will not only give your back yard a taste of the raw beauty of our state but will also be a safe way to guarantee that your lawn will weather the weather. In the basic mechanics of switching to a native based garden, your landscape will save you thousands in water bills, hours in maintenance, and also support the invitation of natural wildlife. That’s right, you’ll be able to go bird watching from your own back yard.
