Mediterranean Makeover


Once again, we’re attacking the ubiquitous front lawn.  It’s hardly ever used, uses too much water, requires constant mowing and trimming, and takes lots of fertilizer and herbicide to keep it looking perfect.

That’s what the future holds for a downtown front garden that we transform on this episode.  And better yet, all of the plants used are native to a Mediterranean climate somewhere in the world (just like San Diego!) so are naturally drought-tolerant.
