  • (1888PressRelease) March 04, 2014 - San Diego, Calif. - In the last few days, the good news has been that there has been a little rain in the southern California area. The bad news is that the drought, of historic proportions, is projected to continue for the months to come.

    "At Eco Minded Solutions, we know that change is something we have to deal with on a daily basis. Making changes to our landscaping solutions to respond to the arid climate we are currently living in is just something we do," said Josh Rosenthal, President of Eco Minded Solutions. While a few years ago, many homeowners wanted to see the greenest yards possible, that trend has changed. "What we are seeing now is clients who want the same beautiful yard, but one that doesn't need a ton of watering. We have developed specific strategies to work with homeowners to create lovely landscaping that is drought tolerant," said Rosenthal.

    Some of best plant options for dealing with the drought include identifying plant materials that are native to the area and that stay compact. Tree varieties such as the Carolina Laurel and the African Sumac both need very little water and are eye catching specimens. Shrubs that work well in dry areas include agave, dymondia and salvias. For added color in drought touched areas, the California Lilac and California Poppy are excellent examples of native plants that thrive in low water areas.

    "The way we work with clients has changed with the dryer climate," said Rosenthal. "Because we are a company that is focused on environmentally-friendly landscaping and construction, we have done a lot of research as to what will benefit the area during a historic drought, like the one we are having now. Believe it or not, our homeowners are finding that there are many, many options that are beautiful, low maintenance, low water options. While the drought is challenging, we can still achieve an amazing outdoor result."

    Despite the challenges of dealing with very little water, Eco Minded Solutions has discovered ways to keep their client's landscapes blooming. By using low water requirement plants and those trees and shrubs that are native to Southern California, yards are still benefiting from unique landscaping treatments.
