Embracing xeriscape philosophy is needed

It’s time to use our water more wisely and get rid of the grass in front yards.

It’s time to use our water more wisely and get rid of the grass in front yards.

Kelowna, with its high temperatures and low rainfall, is just not ideal for a grassy landscape.

When I drive around town, I am most impressed with yards that have moved away from the norm of boring, water wasting grass, that have done some creative artistic rock and xeriscape landscape.

We should stop whining and get with the times—water is precious and shouldn’t be wasted.
