California Friendly® Garden of the Month

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is excited to introduce the California Friendly® Garden of the Month! Each month we will showcase an outstanding Garden from Southern California that is both visually stunning and water efficient. Each garden will feature a different theme and highlight the specific plants used to create the spectacular design. Our goal is to show that beauty and water efficiency go hand in hand while providing some inspiration for your own yard!


This month we feature California Friendly® plants that are perfect for limited space front yards. By selecting California Friendly® plants that have a unique shape or pop of color, you can make a big impact in a defined space. Another way to maximize your confined space is to utilize plants that are dwarf varieties or grow more vertical. Explore the Shopping List to learn about the plants featured in this video.

The California Friendly® Garden Guide lists more than 1,500 plants. Find out more about the plants mentioned in the video.
