Sadly I believe that California may always be in a drought. Having said that I also believe that you can make small changes to make this environment a little better for your health and that of your loved ones. In this video I share with you 3 ways that you can beat the drought in your garden.
First method of beating the drought is to use drought tolerant plants. Plants that don't need to be watered as much, will survive better then most other plants.
Secondly, you can beat the drought by collecting rain water through rainwater harvesting. Free water courtesy of mother nature. You can also connect your laundry water to your irrigation system.
Third, you can beat the drought by reducing the size of your lawn. Do you really need a big amount of lawn? Perhaps that space can be better served to create an enchanting habitat for the local wildlife.
