Improve the value of your home.

Adding plants to your landscape can make your home more valuable. Installing irrigation tools like drip irrigation and efficient watering timers can also improve the resale value.

Colorful and beneficial.

Planting a few flowers, trees, and shrubs gives some color to your yard and has community-wide benefits, for humans and wildlife alike. California friendly plants provide a habitat for pollinators like birds and butterflies.

Cut your energy costs.

Shade trees, which provide a natural heat buffer for your home, can reduce energy consumption for cooling by as much as 25%.

Clean the air.

Plants are vital to a healthy ecosystem and air quality. Just one tree can scrub 26 pounds of CO2 from the air annually, and add essential oxygen.
