Lose the Lawn and Go Waterwise!

We can create a waterwise garden for you using exclusively succulents or by blending succulents with softer grasses, flowering natives and other low water plants. We can also incorporate succulents into your existing landscape.  Give us a call at 858.205.8083 for more info.

San Diego County residents and business owners are eligible for rebates to help pay for replacing turf grass with water-efficient landscaping options. For info about the San Diego County Water Authority’s Turf Replacement Program visit http://turfreplacement.watersmartsd.org/
