Drought Tolerant Plants
Design and Installation
Is your lawn filled with dead patches, weeds and alien grasses? Maintaining an attractive, healthy lawn is a difficult and expensive proposition. And frankly, most lawns in your neighborhood probably don’t look that great.
Have you been thinking about going lawnless?
A beautiful landscape doesn’t require a large, thirsty expanse of grass. You can say good-bye to your weekly ‘mow and blow’ gardener and save money on your water bill every month by replacing your lawn with drought tolerant plants.
Embrace sustainability and create a vibrant, low-maintenance garden that conserves water without compromising on beauty. It’s a win-win for your wallet and the environment.
Design for a drought tolerant front yard in Dana Point
Below is a drought tolerant renovation we recently completed in Laguna Hills. We installed a variety of succulents, converted the sprinklers to drip irrigation and created a DG (decomposed granite) path.

Here’s a terrace in Anaheim Hills where we added new succulents, converted the sprinklers to drip irrigation and mulched with crushed rock. The homeowner received a rebate for installing drip irrigation. And the crushed rock really makes the plants ‘pop’!
This homeowner in Mission Viejo received a rebate for removing his lawn and another rebate for installing drip irrigation. Now they save money every month on their water bill and aren’t paying for the weekly mow and blow..
This homeowner in Costa Mesa received a rebate for removing his lawn and another rebate for converting his sprinklers to drip irrigation. His water bill is much lower and he no longer has a lawn to mow. Saving money and having less maintenance makes removing your lawn a smart choice.
Here’s a renovation we did for a property on a busy street in Orange. We installed low maintenance, drought tolerant plants and drip irrigation. It went from being an eyesore to a stunning front yard, quite the transformation!
Here’s a small front yard in Irvine. We removed the lawn, converted the sprinklers to drip irrigation and planted drought tolerant plants. The homeowner received one rebate for the sprinklers and another for removing the lawn. Now he no longer has to mow the lawn every week.
Here’s a property in Lake Forest where we removed the lawn, installed drip irrigation and planted drought tolerant, low maintenance succulents. They received a rebate for removing the grass and another rebate for converting the sprinklers to drip irrigation. And this lawn, like all the others pictured above, is filled with brown patches and alien grasses.
Orange County Water Districts are offering rebates ($2.00 or more per sq. ft.) to homeowners who take the water saving step of replacing their lawn with plants or artificial turf.
You can receive an additional rebate for changing your sprinkler nozzles to MP Rotators – a more efficient, water saving nozzle. Or if your new landscape plan calls for drip irrigation, that qualifies for a rebate as well.
Conserve water with a ‘smart’ weather based timer for your sprinklers and receive another rebate. Check your water district’s web page for the rebate details for your area.
There are many attractive ways to landscape your property without a lawn that will increase your home’s curb appeal. Lawns can be replaced with any mixture of trees, shrubs, succulents, perennials and groundcovers. All of these can be a beautiful, money saving alternative to a lawn that guzzles water and needs weekly mowing.
Cash rebates, significant water savings every month and much less maintenance year-round all make going lawnless the sensible thing to do.
