Last week the San Diego City Council voted unanimously to make voluntary water restrictions mandatory, starting on November 1st. This was promoted by a continuing drought, and the announcement from the water wholesaler for Southern California, Metropolitan Water District, that it has only 49% of its usual water storage capacity available.
Back in March, we addressed the drought with some tips for drought-resistant landscaping. In that article I noted how I was able to lower my family’s monthly water bill from around $450 to less than $85 per month!
As we’ve seen over the past few months, demand for synthetic lawns has increased dramatically. Another solution to this drought is to plant cacti, succulents and euphorbia. These plants are perfect for areas with little to no water (and they look nice too).
We’re happy to announce our partnership with Desert Theater Nursery in Escondido. They have one of the largest and most exotic selection of drought-resistant plants in all of San Diego county.
