There are many, repeat many, wonderful, colorful(if wanted) NATIVE CALIFORNIA PLANTS which do extremely well without much water.
These plants are hardy, drought tolerant, not all bothered by animals as deer, and many can produce many colorful blooms adding wonderful color to the landscape. These blooms ALSO help the bees which are dying off.
There are many examples of these all around.
One neighbor when I suggested drought tolerant plants, immediately referred to a cactus type plant.
NO; California natives are not a cactus, but a variety of plants which require very little water once established, usually in a year.
Require little in the way of maintenance; little in the use of water; and add beautiful color the landscape. All of this would take place in roughly a year once planted and fostered along during the first year.
Call in a California native plant expert to demonstrate the superb qualities these plants have to conserve on water.
Not only do they conserve water but also add much beauty to the landscape and help bees continue to flourish.
Less water usage, more color and multiple shape of California natives.
This is the optimum way to go for long term future conservation of water.
Wonderful idea Senior Citizen, but do it for a reason to beautify your property not to satisfy the self serving water company people...they will screw us all in the end.
Folks the more water you save and do not use the MORE you will pay for the drops you use. They need to bring in a specific amount of money to cover operating expenses and they will do that by charging us accordingly.
You may think I talking through my hat but I have been around a long time and time after time it's the same old story.
Thanks for listening or at least I hope you are listening. By the way there is not a damn thing we can do about it but pay the bill.

EBMUD had nothing to do with the drought.
We all suffer from the drought.
Population growth continues unabated; ergo the demand for more housing leading to more use/abuse of water.
More people means more demand on water resources.
Now one must "think" community survival and not personal cost at this point in time.
So, we will sink together or float together.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
