Succulents are ideal for the drought conditions for community landscape service settings. For most corporate and bay area properties, 50% of outdoor watering is used for landscape maintenance and using drought tolerant plants in its place can save up to 50% or more. Succulents were originally introduced into the bay area for their drought tolerant characteristics and there low maintenance advantages. 


Succulents are back by popular demand

The principles of drought resistant landscaping, formerly known as Xeriscape has an appealing effect for many bay area owners because of its ability to withstand the drought, less flower replacements and use much less water with very little maintenance. We all know the cost of water is on the rise with most corporate campus multi-building landscape services and we know managers are looking for cost effective alternatives to battle the drought.


It works well with an Apartment Community Landscape Service

Succulent s can be used in a variety of applications including raised planter beds, vertical containers, and flower pots and there colorful foliage can be mixed with a variety of flowering plants and perennials creating a colorful landscape.
