Landscape for Our Mediterranean Climate

A water-wise garden is one that has low water requirements based on planting the right plants for the region, generates little to no run-off and requires very little maintenance. Plant choices that are well-suited for our climate, require less pest management, and their water needs are suited for the cycles of local precipitation. Many plants thrive in our climate, draw beneficial wildlife, and look attractive all year.
