Water-Wise Landscaping

Nearly 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.
