There are a variety of drought tolerant ground covers that will fill in the front yard to meet the City's codes and achieve your goal to reduce water consumption. Drought tolerant landscaping need not be cactus and rocks as there are plenty of California natives and California-friendly plants that are colorful and beautiful year-round. Native and California-friendly plants are attractive, help conserve water, and also restore biodiversity by providing habitat, attracting beneficial insects, birds, and butterflies. There are many reasons to consider a shift in landscaping practices, from the water-intensive lawns, often requiring pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, to beautiful and beneficial plants well adapted to out lovely Mediterranean coastal climate.
