After nearly 20 years of landscaping in Malibu, we have learned what plants will do well here without using a lot of water. You don't have to use desert plants to save water. There are many California Friendly plants that come from other parts of the world such as Australia, China, and the Mediterranean area of Europe. We love using plants that are beautiful AND water conserving.
If you already have a beautiful landscape, and you don't want to tear it out and plant succulents, visit our Water Conservation page.
