When you think of a home’s curb appeal, you may imagine lush green landscaping with brightly colored flowerbeds inviting you into the home. While this is undeniably beautiful, it is difficult to maintain and to justify such landscaping during one of Los Angeles worst drought in California history.
Good news for homeowners, there are plenty of drought resistant landscaping options available to give you that curb appeal, while using less water to maintain it.
Some of the most popular drought tolerant plants include aloe, fortnight lily, geranium, kangaroo paw, fountain grass, various succulents, and one of my personal favorites, lavender.
The Department of LA Water and Power has been offer cash for grass through its SoCal Water Smart program. This programs offers rebates for $2.00 or more per square foot of turf. To find out if you are eligible for this rebate click here.
