Water-Wise Landscaping

Water-Wise Gardening in the Napa Valley Web Site Opens in new windowNearly half of Napa’s treated drinking water is used outdoors, much of it wasted in overwatering lawns and gardens. Like only 2% of the world, Napa has a Mediterranean climate, with cool, wet winters and summer droughts. Selecting appropriate plants, mulching, and frequently adjusting irrigation to match the weather are just a few of the actions you can take to save water in your landscape.

Attention Gardeners: Interested in showing off your beautiful water-wise garden in the 2024 Climate-Friendly Garden Tour on Saturday, May 18? Please fill out this survey by March 15 and we'll be in touch!
