Native Gardens Boost Ecosystem with Low Water
With color year-round and habitat for many bird and butterfly species, this water-conserving Moreno Valley home garden shows how to create contour and visual interest with a flat lot. Wildflowers and deciduous species complement the predominantly evergreen native plant palette.
Now established, needing a deep watering only every three-to-four weeks, this garden can take the heat! Use its plant palette for ideas for your inland garden, and check out www.calscape.org for California native plants by zip code. (Sponsored by Western Municipal Water District.)
