Sustainable Landscape Demonstration Garden Program

Sustainable Landscape Demonstration Gardens in the San Gabriel Valley

These five sites were selected with the intent of reducing the sites’ water footprint by installing high-efficiency irrigation equipment and water efficient plants. Sites were constructed in visible and accessible public locations to provide a focus point for the community and a demonstration of sustainable landscaping. These projects also demonstrate the benefits of on-site storm water retention and capture.

Locating sustainable gardens in easily accessible public locations plays a key role in raising awareness and educating the public about water efficient landscaping. Selection of participating sites was based on factors such as: public visibility, potential water savings, feasibility of converting the landscape, construction restrictions, as well as the site owner and local retail water provider’s commitment to participate. The locations of the sustainable landscape demonstration gardens can be found here.
