Spring is one of my favorite times of year.
It marks a period of new growth after dormancy.
A promise of better times ahead.
Hope for the future.
To me, it's a reassurance of life's recurring abundance -- something that inevitably comes when we respect and appreciate the gifts we are given.
Do we always get what we want? No.
But in the words of one famous rock band, we get what we need.
It's an important outlook to have on life, and one that is aptly applied to current events here in California.
For the first time in history, California is experiencing mandatory statewide water restrictions.
That has a lot of people afraid of what that means for the future.
And that, in turn, has led to a lot of finger-pointing as we decide who gets water and who does not.
In truth, we all have to do our part to conserve.
Most of the fear comes from facing the unknown, and not knowing how the changes are going to impact our lifestyle and/or our livelihood.
Sure, we may no longer be able to douse our lawns with water on a daily basis.
But that doesn't mean we have to be content with dead grass and a barren, desert landscape, either.
Those of us in the industry who have spent years working on water conservation projects know that there is abundance in cutting back.
Abundance in savings through reduced water and maintenance costs.
Abundance in beauty with rich blends of colors, textures and species that can be found in beautiful, drought-tolerant landscapes.
Abundance in knowing that we are doing our part to collectively address a
That's what collaboration is all about.
It's what makes up a community.
Many of our clients made the decision long ago to cut back on their water use, and they're very glad they did.
We've been doing this work for years. It's not just a feel-good marketing ploy...
To us, it's a science.
Talk to us today about how you can meet the state's new water restrictions.
Like so much other change in our lives, you will likely come out all the better because of it.
