The correctly designed native or drought tolerant garden is lush, green and provides colorful blooms throughout the year. Plants native to California or plants imported from similarly hot & dry climates (such as the Mediterranean, South Africa and Australia to name a few) are used to create an exclusive and colorful design.


Large lawns are reduced to smaller areas. There are also many ground covers which can be used instead of grass to help conserve water and reduce overall maintenance.


When choosing a drought tolerant garden one will not only increase the use and enjoyment of one’s outdoor space, but will also help re-establish the natural eco-system as well as attract native birds, hummingbirds and butterflies.
