We as Californians are resilient, resourceful and need to be respectful of our land and all that it gives us. I believe most Californians take seriously the privilege and obligation to keep our great state beautiful and healthy.
When we purchase a home, we buy into a neighborhood, and we have an obligation to beautify our homes and gardens for ourselves and the community.
Research has shown that Californians overwater their gardens by 25% or more. So, what does that mean to you as a homeowner? As a top landscape contractor in Orange County, Prunin Arboriculture and Landscapes, has spent the last couple of years educating homeowners on how they can have the yard and garden they love (and keep their neighborhood beautiful) while reducing the water they use.
When I see billboards, slogans and mailers from our local water municipalities that say, “brown is the new green” it has the feeling of giving up and letting everything die. Californians never give up, so why start now? California has been through many hardships and will always rise to the occasion that best serves the state. We live in one of the most beautiful states in the country and we have a responsibility to keep it that way while being reasonable with its resources.
Here at Prunin Arboriculture and Landscapes we don’t believe that giving up and accepting that “brown is the new green” is how we deal with the stewardship of our state. As a responsible landscape contractor, arborist and Californian, I would like you to know that is doesn’t have to be that way.
Our team at Prunin Arboriculture and Landscapes has pulled all of our resources together to give California options:
- Home consultations/evaluation for water-wise landscaping/gardening
- Landscape design services
- New irrigation systems and irrigation maintenance plans to lower water usage
- A large selection of beautiful, blooming plants that are drought tolerant for homeowners to choose from to upgrade their landscape
- E-Newsletter tips for landscaping/gardening responsibly
I hope this summer you’ll allow Prunin Arboriculture and Landscapes to show you how brown is not the new green, but planting, watering, and gardening responsibly is.
