Long Beach Water Hosts Fourth Annual Lawn-to-Garden Tour
2015-05-01 · By Editor
Long Beach Water is hosting its free Fourth Annual Lawn-to-Garden Tour that will showcase 29 Long Beach homes that have participated in the city’s Lawn-to-Garden program. The turf removal program gives residents $3.50 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. To date, Long Beach has converted almost 2 million square feet of residential and commercial turf to drought tolerant landscapes.
The self-guided tour is free and open to the public. Homeowners will be available at each location to talk about their experiences during their garden transformations.
The Fourth Annual Lawn-to-Garden Tour is Saturday, May 2nd from 10 AM to 2 PM.
A detailed map with directions to each house can be provided upon request or by registering online at www.lblawntogarden.com.
Long Beach Water is an urban, Southern California retail water supply agency, and the standard in water conservation and environmental stewardship.
