This is the fourth year of California’s drought. To learn about the actions the state has taken to manage our water systems and cope with the drought’s impacts, visit Drought.CA.Gov. Every Californian should take steps to conserve water. Find out how at SaveOurWater.com.
The last 4 years have been the driest years on record in California. Residential users in California use upwards of 60% of their water for irrigation purposes. Water rates are increasing (and have never decreased). Urban run-off is the #1 source of ocean pollution (source: surfrider) and much of that run-off comes from over-spray and inefficient irrigation systems.
Conservation is the cheapest, easiest and quickest way to maximize our water resources. Not only that... but its time to SHAME your neighbors!! Not in a bad way, of course. But help educate them that "Brown is the NEW Green"
Instead of a water-thirsty and runoff-generating turf lawn, an Ocean Friendly Garden can sponge up rainwater and supports native plants that thrive under local rain conditions. As a bonus, These types of gardens reduce flooding, recharge local groundwater supplies and stream flows, filter pollution and absorb carbon from the atmosphere.
By removing your ornamental lawns (turf-grass), keeping run-off to a minimum and using less water you will get the following benefits:
Call us to find out about "Square-foot" cost breakdowns. Typically, renovations where turf grass is removed and other plant material or mulch is installed can be done between $12-17 per sqf depending on several factors including access, soil conditions, existing irrigation system and type of plant material to install.
If patios (concrete, DG, decking, etc.) or other hard-scape elements are desired, the cost per square foot increases accordingly.
