Residential Case Studies
CHALLENGE: In 2009, Bill and Vannete Wirant decided to convert their East Coast-style landscaping to a water-wise landscape designed to work with their North County climate and soil conditions. Their property is about half an acre, nearly 50 percent of which was covered with English Ivy and cool season turf, along with Bermuda grass and other plants that demand a lot of water.
CHALLENGE: The owner of a one-acre residential site in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., wanted to reduce high water bills.
CHALLENGE: The homeowners wanted to improve their home’s water efficiency. The case study is an example of a San Diego residence that converted approximately 625 square feet of turf to a WaterSmart landscape.
