New Gardening Website Filled with Information on Drought -Tolerant Plants
Looking for ideas for drought-tolerant plants? Take a look at our new “Gardening in Contra Costa County” website.
It’s designed for Contra Costa weather and soil conditions. It features all kinds of information and photos that will help you select beautiful plants that don’t need a lot of water.
The site is easy to navigate.
There are photos of many types of drought-tolerant yards. Click on a plant, and it will show you all kinds of information on it. You can create a custom plant list that you can print and take to your nursery.
Turn Off Your Sprinklers
Wet weather is predicted for most of next week. We're please to see the rain and snow, but it frustrates us to see sprinklers on when it's raining.
It's a waste.
So double check to make sure the sprinklers are off at your home or office.
