TreePeople's Guide to Yards

Our urban forest, and our resilience against drought, includes your yard! Help us create a more sustainable Southern California by transforming and maintaining your yard into a gorgeous drought-resistant paradise. Our regional ecology is full of plants with bright flowers and healthy soils, not European grasses or rocks and cacti.

Half of urban water use goes towards outdoor irrigation. With these do-it-yourself solutions, you can help reduce the amount of water we waste.
