We are in summer right now, so this information is super important. Download and read as soon as possible.

A finalized version is pending publication in print and on the web with a better layout and upgraded graphics. Until then, we thought it was important (urgent!) that you have this info right now while it’s hot, so here is a link to a download of the draft copy.

RYL III: Design Basics - My Avant Garden
You’ve removed your lawn – now what?  We make it easy to take the next step!  Learn how to create a My Avant Garden pre-planned native garden. This new 5 step program created by My Avant Garden and Tree of Life Nursery will help take the guesswork out of designing your native garden!  We’ll show you how to read the detailed installation plan provided with the kit, give insight into the plant selection for each garden, offer guidance on nurturing your garden through the important establishment phase and introduce you to capturing rainwater for a truly resilient California native garden.

My Avant Gardens are designed to replace thirsty front yards with beautiful, low-water gardens.  All the information and guidance you need for success has been assembled into one convenient package.

What if...

What if...

Planting - April 2016
Planting - April 2016

California’s drought is here to stay. Our climate and local weather persist hot and dry and we look back on the cooler wetter times as only a fond memory.

Or what if.....
California’s drought breaks and we get a few years straight of normal or above normal rainfall. The creeks flow again, green replaces brown for most of the year and the hard drought is a dreadful memory.

What then?
Under either scenario, the “successive gardens” that were planted (are being planted) in response to today’s drought (think turf replacement, rebates, water conservation) will be tested to see if they pass the test of time.
