Tips for Creating a Water-Efficient Landscape Design

Living in California, water conservation is always an important topic, especially when watering your lawn and garden. There are several tips that can help you maintain a beautiful lawn and garden near San Jose, while also creating a water-efficient design.

As you can see in the video, there are many products that aid in containing water on your property for maximum efficiency. Permeable paving strips in your outdoor living space or driveway allow rainwater to stay in your yard. Native plants and locally-produced mulch will also use and protect any rainwater or utility water more efficiently. You can also implement a rain garden, which uses landscape design and simple tools to collect and transport water runoff to your garden instead of a nearby sewer. Speak with your local nursery for more tips on creating a water-efficient lawn and garden.
