Mediterranean Makeover, Topiary, Snails


Original air date: May 2005

May usually means the return of warmer weather in San Diego, so irrigation becomes an issue again if you want your landscape to thrive.  Well, how about cutting the water bill and getting a more interesting front garden all at once?

We turn a thirsty front lawn into a beautiful and water-wise Mediterranean garden.



We also visit the nursery to learn all about the different shapes and sizes of topiary plants. 



Plus, if you have a problem with leaf-munching snails in your garden, we show you how to combat them without harsh chemical pesticides. 


We also touch on the benefits of copper pipe in an irrigation system and the proper care of a Eugenia hedge.
