Lawn Replacement and Xeriscape Project on Monterey Military Base UPDATE

Posted by on September 1, 2016 in ECI, News, Newsletter | 0 comments

ECI removed about two acres of lawn from a military chapel in Monterey last year and the plants are looking awesome! Browse cages are coming off and they are spreading their branches.

The goals of the project are to reduce watering by 20%, reduce use of heavy fertilizers and maximize rainwater retention rates.

There is also the added benefit of promoting California natives and indigenous plants to the Fort Ord ecology.
