Water-Wise Demonstration Garden

South Coast Water District's Water-Wise Demonstration Garden features a variety of drought-tolerant plants. To create the garden, designed by Jodie Cook Landscape Design, irrigated turf was removed and replaced with California-friendly plants, artwork, and two large rain barrels.
