How long should I be watering?

Click here to calculate a suggested irrigation schedule for your neighborhood.

How do I select plants?

Calscape is a database that uses your zipcode to provide a list of California Native Plants that evolved to thrive in your neighborhood. You can learn more about the plants, what pollinators they support, and even what nurseries carry them!

Do I need a licensed contractor?
  • If you are participating in the NatureScape program, a licensed contractor is already provided.
