Need something to do over the weekends? How about improving your landscape? With the warm weather and spring time here, it is the perfect time for you to fix up your landscaping… and make it more drought friendly!
Did you know that a 5% investment in the landscaping of your property can increase its value by as much as 15%? Additionally, great landscaping may reduce the amount of time a home stays on the market by nearly six weeks. Even if you are not planning to move any time soon, spring is a great time to spruce up your landscape and make it a place where you enjoy spending time!
When making decisions about what to plant in your yard and garden, it is very important to choose plants that do not require a lot of water!

These links are to articles I found beneficial that include some great landscaping/plant ideas that are fairly water resistant and that grow well in the Bay Area climate.
If you are looking to plant vegetables, the article listed below suggests you plant in the spring. This article is also a bit older but still has many helpful tips in growing your garden during the drought.
I hope you found this information useful! If you are thinking about selling and are in need of some landscaping renovations before going on the market, I will gladly help you out! I recently renovated my front yard to be more water resistant. Gardening is one of my favorite hobbies 🙂
