Our Demonstration Garden

In 2012, the District completed a beautiful demonstration garden showcasing lush and efficient native plants.

The garden is open to the public from 7:30 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday for self-guided tours.

As the plants are native to the desert area, they are naturally drought tolerant and require little water making them the perfect addition to any desertscape.

By incorporating water-wise California native plants in landscapes, you can quickly improve your outdoor water use.

If you plan on creating your own garden, below are some drought-tolerant options:
