S.L.V. Water District Tip: Plants

Black BerriesPlant water-smart gardens and keep them “clean.”
It’s a good idea to remove unwanted plants from your garden and focus your energy/water on those you DO care for the most.

Furthermore, GO NATIVE!
Plant native grasses, ground covers, shrubs and trees. Once established, natives need water less frequently and can better survive dry periods. (a good example: Blackberries… yumm!)

Drought-Smart Garden Design: USE MULCH to retain moisture in the soil.  Mulch also helps control weeds that compete with landscape plants for water.
