Like many other entities, we continue to expand our web site in an effort to provide helpful information for our customers. We are adding a web feature that we think will be particularly useful and fun for local residents who are looking for ideas as they consider changes to their landscapes. This site will highlight water wise gardening concepts, but will include hundreds of diverse photos providing a wide variety of attractive examples.
This new feature will be accessible from a link
on our website home page and will include hundreds of pictures of beautiful landscapes, most from our local area. One section includes “tours” showing multiple views of individual properties. Another highlights “galleries” with photos taken at numerous sites divided into categories such as decks, arbors, front yards, back yards, streetscapes and hillsides. Additionally, a variety of gardening tips are provided.
Moreover, the site will enable users to search for different sizes and types of plants that can be grown locally, and in turn to develop a list of favorites. Detailed Information on such aspects as whether plants prefer sun or shade and their water needs is also provided. This can help property owners determine not only what plants they find attractive, but also which ones might be most appropriate and successful in specific locations.
We think you’ll enjoy viewing photos featuring local properties and will agree that landscaping with water efficiency in mind can be both functional and beautiful.
