Bay-Friendly Landscaping is a whole systems approach to the design, construction and maintenance of the landscape to support the integrity of one of California’s most magnificent ecosystems, the San Francisco Bay watershed. The Bay-Friendly Landscaping program is now supported by ReScape California.
Some of the guideline principles guiding Bay-Friendly Landscaping are:
✔ Landscaping in harmony with the natural conditions of the San Francisco Bay watershed
✔ Reducing waste and recycling materials
✔ Nurturing healthy soils while reducing fertilizer use
✔ Conserving water, energy and topsoil
✔ Using integrated pest management to minimize chemical use
