There is no doubt these days having drought tolerant plants is the trend and almost the law. Now with watering restrictions in San Diego it is time to think about drought tolerant landscaping for your home or garden. Increasing the home values can be done by having a professional do your entire landscape with a nice upgraded drought tolerant theme.
San Diego real estate includes several different types of terrain and yard types, so check with your association for rules if you have one. Also this would be a good time to look at making your home and boundary fire safe! Two in one!
Native and drought tolerant plants are important for this region, not just because they are water efficient, but because they are the cornerstone of biological diversity and the foundations of the native ecosystems. Using “California-friendly” plants for everything from backyard gardens to wide scale re-vegetation is a positive practice that will benefit the local habitat and all residents who live here.I've included some links for you guys to check out involving drought tolerant landscaping ideas for San Diego real estate.
With our current climate conditions of increasing warmth and less moisture, more and more Californians are becoming interested in replacing high-maintenance, lawns that require a lot of water and fertilizers, with water-conserving plants. These can be anything from ground covers to a field of meadow flowers to stately oak trees – they all provide the benefits of lower water needs, reduced maintenance requirements, restored soil health, increased diversity that attracts birds and butterflies, as well as the aesthetic beauty of blending in with the natural landscapes.
Here is Lowes version of drought tolerant landscape ideas and pretty good, plus you can get most stuff there!
This gardenista lady I found also has a pretty cool blog and I included her ideas there in that link!
Pintetrest also had a lot of photos which helps plan your garden or style.
I hope these were some good ideas to help with your drought tolerant styles and making your home a nice water friendly environmentally sound place!

So you log online to find homes for sale in your area. The two big websites for Real Estate searches come up….Zillow and Trulia. Then 1000's of local agent and brokerage-run websites pop up, giving you an option to search their inventory or the local MLS.
Zillow claims you can find 1000's of more properties on their forum and search than the local MLS, because they use data from banks, REALTORS®, foreclosure's and For Sale by Owner Properties.
…WHAT THEy DONT TELL YOU is half the homes you are looking at are either already in Escrow when they are listed Active, giving false hope for Buyers. Also what they don't show you is a buyer frustrated from trying to contact several dozen homeowners, FSBO's and properties that do not have responsive homeowners-agents, or they are really OFF THE MARKET and not ready for offers.
Hiring a local agent who has access to MLS and ReboGateway (similar programs) will be able to give you way more accurate data on what is actually available, in escrow etc.
While I believe Zillow may be good for some people and agents, I also believe exploring all of your search options is a better bet. Realtor.com is a great search site. If you are looking for For Sale by Owner properties (generally overpriced or unmotivated Seller!) you can try ForSalebyOwnerSD.com, Owners.com etc etc.
