WATER CONSERVATION The water shortage in California has a direct impact on all of its inhabitant’s lives. Southern California in its natural state cannot support the water demands its citizens place on it. As a result we are becoming increasingly aware of our water usage and its impact on our environment. While there are numerous avenues being taken to combat the drought, realizing that some plants require more water and care than others, and then choosing what is appropriate given our climate can have a massive impact when one takes into account the amount of irrigated landscape found in Southern California. A transformation is necessary to adopt landscapes that minimize water use while retaining their purpose, attractiveness, and cultural value. Substituting lower water using, California-friendly plant material rather than traditional high demand turf is necessary in order to transform our region into a more responsible, ecologically driven one. One that can respond to and reform in response to the water crisis so that we can prevent future ones before they take place.
