2016-05-13 · By Editor
Come celebrate Long Beach Water Department’s free Fifth Annual Lawn-to-Garden (L2G) Tour May 14, 2016 showcasing 30 beautiful Long Beach homes that have participated in the City’s Lawn-to-Garden program. The turf removal program gives residents $2.50 per square foot, for up to a thousand square feet, to remove their front lawn and replace their landscape with drought tolerant and California-native plants.
Over the last six years more than 2,600 Lawn-to-Garden transformations have taken place in Long Beach creating over two million square feet of habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, and collectively conserving about 150 million gallons of water.
The self-guided tour is free and open to the public. Homeowners are available at each location to talk about how they designed, installed and maintain their highly successful Lawn-to-Garden projects.
Attendees are encouraged to participate in the “Succulent Selfie” contest by snapping a photo with their favorite drought tolerant plant they find on the L2G Tour and sharing it on social media using the #L2GTour.
The Lawn to Garden Tour takes place Saturday, May 14th, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A detailed map with directions to each house can be provided upon request or by registering online at www.lblawntogarden.com.
