Re-imagine Your Landscape
It's More Than Just a Yard
Helping bees, birds, and beneficial insects while conserving water was the ultimate goal for this homeowner. Here you will find flowers such as the Coreopsis ‘Galaxy’ that have open stamens which allow bees and other beneficial insects to easily access the pollen. Plants like these can help add extra color to your yard and save water.
In the back yard, the homeowner has also created a small corner filled with pollinator-friendly plants. She hopes to develop this and continue growing
a habitat for more beneficial insects to stop by and visit.

Inspired by previous landscapes featured on the Water-Wise Landscape Tour, this homeowner wanted to convert their yard as well. After removing their turf, but keeping their mature shade tree, they added a fresh layer of mulch and incorporated a bed of native California wildflowers. With other water-wise choices like lavender and a colorful collection of sage plants,
this homeowner is always in the process of finding smart new additions to beautify their yard.
Mulch can help to retain moisture in soil, slow down erosion and prevent soil compacting. When adding mulch to your yard, make sure to apply it 3 inches deep.
