Here we are in a 4th year of a severe drought with no end in sight. We are all facing moderate to severe watering restrictions depending on where we live. However, we can do better than we are being asked, to reduce water. The Greenery has been striving to educate gardeners on responsible water use for decades. In the mid-late 2000′s when California began to be concerned about water supplies we created several information handouts full of information to help our customers reduce and conserve water. You can find them on our California Friendly page.
On our California Friendly page you will find basic tips on watering the landscape, tips for proper and responsible watering of trees and shrubs, tips for lawns as well as a list of California Friendly plants that you can find at The Greenery. While the water needs of your landscape is not the same for every yard and garden the basic tips will get you started. The knowledgeable staff at The Greenery can help you one on one (FREE of charge!) deal with your specific landscape. If a site visit is needed, however, there is a charge. See our Services page for more details.

2. Check the lines frequently to make sure each dripper is running, is not clogged and there are no leaks.
3. Run the drip system for the appropriate amount of time! No sure how long? Just ask us! Hint: It is not how many minutes, but hours! Or read Farmer Fred’s Rant about drip systems here.
Anytime I plant something, the very first thing I do is prepare the soil. The soil has to support and feed the plant so it is vital for healthy productive plants. Here is how I plant my veggies:
1. Make sure the soil is not compacted but rototilling or digging the entire bed is not necessary.
2. Mix in soil amendment. (more…)
