Growing a California-Friendly Landscape

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 July , 2015

The wet winter in California is now beginning to turn into a drier spring. As you begin to prepare your landscape for the coming of the new season, Juniper Landscape Company in San Diego can offer tips for growing a more “California-friendly” landscape.

Drought-A California Fact of Life

Southern California’s arid climate often leads to drought. Because of the high costs and potential waste of maintaining a lush and green lawn in California, you should consider growing a more drought-friendly landscape. This type of landscape is especially suited for California’s climate, meaning it requires far less water than a typical lawn-style landscape enjoyed in regions with more rainfall.

Start by getting to know your landscape. Determine which areas get a lot of sun and which areas get a lot of shade. This is important for plant selection. You do not want to plan shade plants in an extremely sunny area of the yard as they will not do well. Rather, select your plants according to the type of yard you have so they will thrive.

Pest Control in California

California has both native pests and invasive species brought in by the planting of non-native plants. Be careful when treating your yard for pests, as pesticides may not be formulated for your particular type of pests, leading to unnecessary use of chemicals and poisons.

It may be worth your while to have an expert examine your yard and determine what type of pests are present. If you take this step, you can focus your attention on eradicating those particular pests with the most eco-friendly methods possible, including the introduction of natural predators that will not harm your plants.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
