To help showcase how California Friendly™ plants beautify homes and businesses, the Metropolitan Water District has unveiled a new monthly video featuring different types of watersaving garden on the agency’s water conservation webpage, bewaterwise.com.
The two-minute videos will showcase a specific plant each month to educate gardeners across the region that being California Friendly can be easy and beautifying. California Friendly describes native and non-native plants that use less water, require minimal maintenance and can
better withstand drought conditions.
The Southland’s micro-climates offer unique options for homeowners, business, companies and public agencies to create beautiful, water-saving gardens that enhance wildlife habitat, conserve water and help lower landscaping costs. Different plants are adapted to thrive in different locations. Choosing the right, climate-appropriate plants in coastal, inland valley, desert and mountain areas for any garden will ensure a successful outcome.
