May 3, 2010 - PRLog -- California's ongoing drought and water rationing continues, despite a better than average winter rainfall amount.  Water rationing remains in place in San Diego County and several other Southern California metropolitan areas.  The landscape and nursery industries are having to rethink and remake themselves with new, drought tolerant plant materials that are both beautiful, easy to maintain and conserve water thereby saving money.  

The difficulty is weaning Californians off the concept that a bright green expanse of turf in the front yard equals a beautiful landscape.  Water agencies continue to increase their tiered rates for water consumption and while these agencies attempt to convince the public about the need to conserve, it appears the punitive measure of rate increases might be the most effective means to convince the public now is the time to reduce or eliminate turf lawns and improve irrigation efficiency.

Enter professional horticulturist Jeremy Rappoport, a California C-27 landscape contractor, ISA certified Arborist and a construction industry veteran land development specialist.  Mr. Rappoport advocates and provides horticultural landscape design and plant palette development.  

Horticultural design is the process of using a plant's "cultural requirements" to determine use of a particular plant in a landscape design.  Plant cultural requirements refer to the specific environmental and horticultural requirements of a particular plant.  Typical plant cultural requirements include sun or shade exposure, hardiness and frost tolerance, soil preference type, nutrient requirements, and much more.  By selecting the horticulturally correct plant material for a given location, plant establishment and vitality is optimized, resulting is brilliant, vigorous, healthy plantings much less susceptible to disease and insect problems thereby reducing ongoing maintenance expense.

With so many new, fantastic, beautiful species and hybrids, replacing turf areas with drought tolerant plantings no longer means just California natives or less attractive plants.  Southern California is in a Mediterranean climate, there are countless drought tolerant flowering perennial trees, shrubs and ground covers to replace that worn out grass and enhance your property while reducing water consumption and saving money!

Stop going it alone, use a professional horticultural consultant to design and manage your construction project.
