Issues? Here an alternative….

Tropicals and other high-water depended plants are one of the most popular plants used in landscapes all over the world. This situation frustrates me, since I do not see other thing than palms, grass and other highly used plant material; it seems to be no other option when designing a landscape.  I not totally dislike them, there is really good species that are not that popular and enhance really good focal points and brings an interesting look to landscapes. I t must be probably that I have learned about other options such as  native plants that brings a more natural feeling when arranging them in the most efficient way, especially in Southern California.  Changing this situation would help in household’s economy and decreasing water diversions from Owens Valley and Mono Lake into LA for example.

Lack of plants’ education is possible one of the most related issues of people’s likes toward plants selection. They probably have not had the opportunity of realizing how many other plant options exist a more effective landscape.   Now I feel the need of letting people know about all of these options and being part of this new change in landscaping. Letting them know about the benefits of using natives and more proper plant materials can change their persistence toward the use of high water depended plants.  Changing this situation would help in household’s economy and the decreasing of water diversion from Owens Valley and Mono Lake into LA for example. There is many we can do to revitalize the Owens River, and here’s one alternative.

  1. I wonder why I had same feeling when I read, “Tropicals and other high-water depended plants are one of the most popular plants used in landscapes all over the world”. we have learned about mostly native plants and how it used in the California landscape. In general, we have to use the plants depend on the climate unless the planting indoor. My question is why we learn mostly about the California Landscape, Well some people going to get job in here but I’m not. However, the general things are probably same things.
