Member Recognized for Water Saving

Congratulations to our member Linda Jones and her husband for being recognized by the South Coast Water District for the implementation of water saving techniques at their Dana Point home.

Water Saver of the Month Jones

The Jones’ have a large property consisting of fruit trees, a vegetable garden, lawn and drought tolerant ornamentals. They contemporized their irrigation system by replacing old designed sprinklers and drip with direct target drip, tubing and micro-sprayers. They continued the saving effort by converting their front lawn to Dymondia a South African native from the Daisy family. This lawn alternative can take foot traffic and this author has even seen it used successfully in drive ways.                                         Congratulations and thank you for setting a good example.

CD Article April 2015

April brought the installation of our first enhancement to the La Sala Court Yard reflection pool. The transformation was immediate. The pop of blue color in the ceramic pots brought out the blue from the existing tiles. Thank you to the SJC Garden Club Members for donating the funds and to the time and effort of the talented people mentioned in this article for putting it all together. Without them it would not have happened.
