Homeowner John & Anna G
Location Oceanside
Yard Front


Desiring a lush Mediterranean garden, John & Anna attended the WaterSmart Landscape Makeover Program where they learned about water storage, sheet mulching, designing a garden with water-wise plants, water-saving sprinkler options and so much more. The greatest benefit from our re-landscaping project has been the beautiful transformation of our yard and the good will it has generated – many have stopped to express their congratulations. Succulents produce a lot of babies and we share them with our neighbors. We now have a beautiful lush garden but our water bill is not high. However, that’s not the best part – we have a garden of good will and there is nothing better.”
