• The Right Plants - Learn how to select a variety of climate appropriate plants suited for your landscape from California native to non-native drought tolerant plants.

• The Right Equipment - Learn about rainwater harvesting and water efficient irrigation components which can aid you in watering your landscape in the most efficient manner.

• The Right Schedule - Implement proper watering practices as the seasons change for different plant types and learn how to build a living soil for a healthy garden.
