Hi Everybody,

I haven’t posted for a while, so sorry! I have been busy updating my front yard to water-wise landscape.  This is what it looks like six months after removing the lawn, installing a drip system and planting drought-resistant plants. (Some freesia bulbs just showed up to add a touch of yellow to my spring landscape!)20170321_123655 (002)

It was brought to my attention that I can enter my yard into this year’s WaterSmart Landscape Contest! This competition rewards beautiful drought-conscious landscaping created or commissioned by customers of numerous San Diego County Water Agencies.  I have been looking at the past winners‘ pictures and am inspired by the commitment we have to keep our neighborhoods appealing and charming while saving water. Here is a  picture (below) of the progress I have made in my back yard.  Enter your yard in the contest by 4/7 to win more money to invest in your outdoor living space.
