Going Green with Parkways!


L.A.’s Board of Public Works recently made it a bit easier to go green! That’s right, last month the Board voted on new rules that will allow homeowners in the city to plant drought tolerant turf and ground cover without having to obtain a permit.

This means less water use, which means not only water savings but less runoff that will make its way into out storm drain system!
