California Native Garden

Our California native garden includes varieties that grow locally and thrive in our Mediterranean climate. The goal of the garden is to inspire homeowners to include native plants in their landscapes and to demonstrate how they utilize minimum water, and promote a pollinator-friendly yard.

Once established, most native plants need little irrigation beyond the normal rainfall and serve as a source of food and habitat for hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. This garden is pesticide free as native plants have naturally adapted defenses against many local pests and diseases. Omitting pesticides enables beneficial insects to thrive and keeps chemicals out of our watersheds. This garden is also fertilizer free and requires little pruning.
