Sherman Oaks Landscaper Tells Homeowners: “Its Time To Start Saving Water Again”

A drought-resistant landscape redesign helps Los Angeles area homeowners conserve water and love their backyards again without fear of yearly summer water shortages. Some even qualify for rebates!

Sherman Oaks, United States - April 16, 2018 /PressCable/ —

As the rainy season in Los Angeles comes to an end and we prepare for another dry and blisteringly hot summer; one of the original pioneers of “go-green” landscapes: Green Republic Landscapes, Inc. reveals some of their secrets to putting together a beautiful drought-resistant landscape that also saves you money.

The first step to creating your new yard is to remove all unnecessary grass & debris and level the area.

Next, you’ll want to plant drought-tolerant California-native plants. There are a ton of options you can choose from but a variety of succulents are often preferred by most people.

Third, you would install a cost-efficient drip irrigation system. Instead of a wasteful, old-fashioned sprinkler that sprays water everywhere, a drip system is the most precise way of watering in 2018.

Finally, you can create beautiful pathways and enhance the look of your yard with rocks, decomposed granite, flagstone, pavers, and mulch.

The recent trend of installing drought-resistant landscaping has been growing in popularity every year due to the overwhelming need to conserve water in California.

In fact, the drought was so severe in 2015 that Governor Brown started offering a massive rebate program to entice homeowners to replace their lawns with drought-resistant landscaping and do their share to save water.

Customers who install drought-resistant landscapes can achieve immediate water saving benefits now as well as many years into the future. On average they will use 90% less water irrigating the plants around their home plus it helps make life easier by helping them spend less time doing yard maintenance.

Now in 2018, turf removal incentives are no longer being offered in all regions because funding has nearly exhausted. But these rebates are still available in some areas. Visit http://greenrepubliclandscapes.com to see if rebates are still in effect where you live before that funding completely dries up too!

Homeowners serious about lowering water usage expenses but want professional help making it happen can achieve complete landscape efficiency and create a true backyard oasis of beauty by getting one of Green Republic Landscapes custom landscape designs. These include a smart irrigation system which can be controlled from your smartphone, eye-appealing new hardscapes, and the perfect combination of drought-resistant plants to make the beauty of your yard really shine through!

Motti Buskila, Owner & Operator of Green Republic Landscaping Inc. had this to say about it:

“A study by the city of Santa Monica and Santa Monica colleges says that switching out an outdated 2,000-square-foot yard green and lush yard with drought-tolerant landscapes can save a homeowner up to $2,200 in a given year – And that’s why this is so important!

What we do at Green republic Landscapes is map out every aspect of our customer’s landscape, always keeping three main criteria in mind:

1. Aesthetics

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” Each design and project is a living entity. At Green republic Landscapes we bring outdoors spaces to their utmost potential based on our client’s needs and budget. We strive to introduce innovative ideas and technologies while providing sustainable and aesthetically appealing outdoor spaces.

2. Function

From the inception of each design idea to the finish of a project construction our goal is to create the perfect space for you! At Green Republic Landscapes each design element, plant, and landscape material is selected carefully and with a purpose. Let us find out what your needs are, and we will do the rest.

3. Environment & Sustainability

Green republic Landscapes is an environmentally friendly firm. Our design & build firm always takes into consideration environmental concerns. Some of our design methods are influenced by LID. LID is an approach to land development (or re-development) that works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible. LID can be applied to new development, redevelopment, or as retrofits to existing development.

Low maintenance+low water consumption = lower bills.”

Not just land heat waves: Oceans are in hot water, too

Aug 15, 2018

WASHINGTON — Even the oceans are breaking temperature records in this summer of heat waves. Off the San Diego coast, scientists earlier this month recorded all-time high seawater temperatures since daily measurements began in 1916. "Just like we have heat waves on land, we also have heat waves in the ocean," said Art Miller of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Between 1982 and 2016, the number of "marine heat waves" roughly doubled, and likely will become more common and intense as the planet warms, a study released Wednesday found. Prolonged periods of extreme heat in the oceans can damage kelp...

Live salmon released for ailing orca but she doesn't eat

Aug 15, 2018

SEATTLE — Researchers carrying out unprecedented efforts to save an ailing young killer whale in the U.S. Northwest released live salmon into waters in front of the free-swimming orca but didn't see her take any of the fish. The operation that dropped eight salmon from a boat Sunday is part of an extraordinary response effort to save the 3 ½-year-old critically endangered whale called J50, who is malnourished and in poor body condition. A veterinarian gave the animal a closer look Thursday and also injected her with antibiotics using a dart. Researchers want to see whether they can dose a...

AP Exclusive: Google tracks your movements, like it or not

Aug 15, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — Google wants to know where you go so badly that it records your movements even when you explicitly tell it not to. An Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on Android devices and iPhones store your location data even if you've used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so. Computer-science researchers at Princeton confirmed these findings at the AP's request. For the most part, Google is upfront about asking permission to use your location information. An app like Google Maps will remind you to allow access to location if you...

Devastating toxic algae bloom plagues Florida's Gulf Coast

Aug 15, 2018

LONGBOAT KEY, Fla. — Tons of dead fish. A smell so awful you gag with one inhale. Empty beaches, empty roads, empty restaurants. A toxic algae bloom has overrun Florida's southern Gulf Coast this summer, devastating sea life and driving people from the water. "I've never seen it this bad," said 31-year-old Heather Lamb of Venice. She's a hairdresser and makeup artist who styled herself as a dead mermaid and posted photos on social media to raise awareness of the problem. "I feel like it cleanses your soul to go to the beach. For me to not be able to...

Orca back to feeding, frolicking after carrying dead calf

Aug 15, 2018

FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash. — Researchers say an endangered killer whale that drew international attention as she carried her dead calf on her head for more than two weeks is finally back to feeding and frolicking with her pod. The Center for Whale Research in Washington state says it watched the orca, known as J35, chase a school of salmon in Haro Strait west of San Juan Island on Saturday afternoon. The whales have been struggling because of a lack of salmon, and J35's calf died soon after birth on July 24. The mother carried the baby on her head for...
