When dry weather turns into unrelenting drought, many gardeners seek solutions with regard to the best way to handle the situation. In Southern California, where drought has become an all-too-familiar reference, a tipping point of sorts has been reached wherein many residents have converted some or all of their lawn to drought-tolerant landscapes, while still others are mulling it over. More than a few California agencies, including the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, have set up “California-friendly landscaping” websites with tips and suggestions, with the LADWP even offering a rebate for those who choose to have their yards redone through the agency and who use less water.
