This blog is a pioneering resource for drought tolerant smart California Gardens.  Preservation of the spirit of California and xeriscape creates a visually attractive landscape that uses plants selected for their water efficiency. Properly installed and maintained, a xeriscape can use less than one-half the water of a traditional landscape and require less maintenance than turf landscapes.
