You can do so much better than grass, and with less water…
Many of the needs that are being met by lawns can be met without using so much water and money. The style and glamour of the landscapes in the French and Italian Riviera can be duplicated here using the same Mediterranean plant palettes, for example. There are many options--only having a small lawn, putting in low water use turf, and using Riviera-style landscapes that use much less water. Come learn about what you can do to feel good about your landscape as well as your water footprint.
Bring your friends and neighbors who love their lawns! We want to listen to them and suggest solutions that they will feel good about. This event is for those who are not part of the 'choir'. We need to reach out to everyone in our community and compassionately and intelligently give them options that work for all of us.
