Home landscapes that require copious amounts of water simply aren’t an option anymore. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for barren expanses of rock mulch or artificial turf. California native plants can create a lush, wildlife-friendly landscape that requires minimal irrigation once it’s established. Learn which plants will work best in your yard, how to get them established, and how to keep them looking great all year long.
