San Diego County is often described as having the perfect climate. The warm, sunny days and cool nights make outdoor living a special perk that can be enjoyed year-round. Many homes, businesses and homeowners associations take pride in their immaculate landscaping. Expansive lawns and turf areas can be a great place for activities; however, often times high water use turf areas go unused. California is currently in a drought, which means water resources are scarce. There has been a recent shift in the way many San Diegans are landscaping around their homes and businesses. Lawns are being removed and replaced with water friendly (drought tolerant) landscapes, which can be beautiful and beneficial. Irrigation systems are being fine-tuned to conserve water, which can save residents money. Many resources are available to help homeowners and businesses create water-wise landscapes and conserve water.
