About IE Garden Friendly
Southern Californians use about two-thirds of their water outside the home. Reducing our outdoor water use is crucial if we hope to build a sustainable future for our region.
With its dynamic tools, interactive galleries and useful gardening practices, Water Saving Garden Friendly helps homeowners transform their yards into beautiful — and water-efficient — outdoor spaces. The site includes a host of educational programs and resources provided by participating water agencies dedicated to improving our region's water efficiency without compromising on the beauty or variety of our landscapes.
