Plants clean the air, increase the value of your home, support local ecology, cut energy costs and make California more beautiful. Get out there and plant something!
Plant California is your go-to resource for gardening tips and projects:
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.
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.
Shade trees, which provide a natural heat buffer for your home, can reduce energy consumption for cooling by as much as 25%.
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.
