Sometimes it’s time to say goodbye. Are you ready to change out your water-thirsty landscape?
Picture your life after the breakup: a beautiful garden haven on a hot day; a garden with a small lawn for kids or pets, surrounded by plants that celebrate the seasons of the San Francisco Bay region, including our dry summers. Perhaps your garden includes sculpture, or a small recirculating fountain. Maybe it includes a bench for reading, or has plants that attract hummingbirds, or has a patio for enjoying al fresco meals with your family.
Summer is the perfect time to plan your garden. Here are some WaterSmart examples from homes around the Bay Area to get your gardening juices flowing!
