On January 13th 2014, Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of extreme drought conditions for California. High Sierra Snow pack is at 17% of normal and our Reservoirs are at the lowest levels they have been in over a decade. Governor Brown asked us to reduce our water consumption by 20%.
Due to these conditions, we at Gentle Giants Gardening and Landscaping will not install any new lawns or sprinkler irrigation systems until the drought is over. Please reconsider putting in a lawn as well until the drought is over. We will gladly remove lawns and replace them with drought tolerant plants, install drip irrigation systems, vegetable gardens, rain catching and gray water systems, and water permeable hardscaping.
Please refer to the Urban Farmer Store website for more information regarding water saving techniques.
