San Diego Sustainable Landscapes
In addition to being El Nino Ready for your home here’s an approach to landscaping that can help you take advantage of the rain: San Diego Sustainable Landscapes Program (SLP).
San Diego Sustainable Landscape Guidelines pdf copy of the SLP Guidelines.
The SLP Guidelines will walk you through landscaping principles such as:
- Building healthy, living soil that acts like a sponge by absorbing water when it rains or we irrigate
- Collecting rain water from roofs and other hard surfaces, and redirecting it into the soil
- Growing plants that thrive in our local weather conditions and ‘feed the local pollinators’
Classes have already begun!
The SLP is a Proposition 84 Grant Funded Program through the San Diego Integrated Regional Water Management Program (IRWMP) and California Department of Water Resources (DWR). Incentives for retrofitting your landscape will be available soon.
