California's historic drought requires that we all reduce our water use. One easy way to conserve is to replace your water-thirsty lawn with a beautiful, drought-tolerant garden. Bay Area water agencies and cities are now offering cash rebates to do just that! And it can have a big impact - outdoor irrigation accounts for 35% of total water use by households in the region.
We live in one of the world's five Mediterranean climates, which are some of the most botanically diverse areas on Earth. Simply put, this climate is a gardener's dream. Many Mediterranean climate plants, including California natives, are highly drought-tolerant.
