Sustainable Landscaping

What is sustainable landscaping?

Perry Apple TreeOur definition of sustainable landscaping is a lush, beautiful and productive garden. A garden that is fed primarily by secondary water – greywater (recycled household water from washing machines, showers and bathroom sinks) and rainwater stored in the ground and harvested from the roof reduces the use of drinking water as an irrigation source. Growing food during drought conditions is possible when using secondary water!

We envision our Solano County neighborhoods green with trees and plants that provide shade, food, and habitat for other wildlife that supports diverse ecosystems.
