Have you been reading about the water shortages in many San Luis Obispo County Communities? Are you concerned about the predictions of prolonged drought in the southwest United States? Have you experienced an unusually high water bill for no apparent reason? If you could save money and improve the environment too, would you be interested?
Water Wise Gardening
The City of Pismo Beach is pleased to offer you this tool in designing a water wise garden. Please click the link below to access the San Luis Obispo County Partners In Water Conservation Water Wise Landscaping site. There you will be able to browse pictures of gardens from all over the county to get planting ideas. When browsing gardens you can “hover” over plants you like to learn their common name, botanical name and characteristics of that plant. Further plants can be searched by common name, botanical name or a guided search. The guided search allows users to find plants based on plant type, amount of sun light the plant will receive, expected plant height, color of flower, type of soil and time of year the plant will bloom.
If you have any questions about the Garden Wise Website or water conservation please call the Department of Public Works at (805) 773-4656.

We Want To Help You
