Create a Greener Landscape

Cool article in Kiplingers Finance Magazine:


Some highlights from the article:

  • All together lawns are the largest irrigated crop - 32 million acres
  • 1/3 of all residential water goes to lawn irrigation
  • California native gardens use 60-90% less water
  • Cost is the same for conventional landscape ($4-$7 /sq. ft)
