“During the recent series of Resident Tours, we polled our customers and learned that they regularly use YouTube,” said Nick Mrvos, Landscape Conservation Specialist. “Our goal is to educate our customers in ways that are convenient and meaningful to them. Showing beautiful, low water use plants in videos can help make learning fun.”
California Friendly plants, or California natives, are an essential component of water conservation. Watering landscape accounts for nearly 50% of total water usage by an average household. By reducing turf and planting California natives, residents can decrease water usage and lawn maintenance chores.
