DROUGHT TOLERANT / GREY WATER SYSTEMS / NATIVES / SOD ROOFS / XERISCAPES
With the ever present and growing need to conserve water on the Peninsula and our region's Mediterranean climate, we believe it is good stewardship to work with Mother Nature and utilize plants and trees that are native to our area or micro-climates.
Native and drought tolerant plants and trees are better suited to live and thrive in our local (micro) climate conditions and are more resistant to stress, disease and/or pests. So we purchase our plants and trees from local nurseries that specialize in drought tolerant and local natives - whether California Coastal or more arid zones of our area. Xeriscapes are also an excellent and attractive alternative to minimize a property’s landscape water requirements.
We also can special order sod roofs (these take about 2+ months to grow) to conserve energy and provide an even more natural look and feel for your property. Conserving water is simply a must for our area, so installing drip irrigation systems, reducing non native grass yards, and installing Grey Water systems (with County approval) are becoming more viable options in our area to reduce one’s local water consumption and also save money over time.
