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 are featuring a California Friendly® Meadow Garden. Meadows are comprised of California Friendly® low ground covers, perennials, and medium sized grasses and are perfect for filling larger spaces. Filling landscape areas with groupings of one type of California Friendly® plant creates a sense of rhythm throughout the garden.

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