One trend that we have been seeing lately is the different methods to maintain a beautiful yard while reducing the environmental footprint, especially while California experiences a severe drought. Many of our clients have opted for environmentally conscious landscaping alternatives for drought tolerant yards due to California’s drought. There are many different plants that look beautiful while needing much less water than traditional grass or foliage. There are also many ways to replace traditional grass with unique options. Not only do these methods look gorgeous, they will reduce your water bill and reduce your environmental impact. We found inspiration from our own listings, as well as from esteemed landscaping sources for tips and tricks to keep your home’s yard looking lovely! See below for tips and design inspiration.
