Episode 2: Small Space Transformation

Just because something is small, that doesn’t mean it can’t have a big impact. Join Juan and landscape designer Jodie Cook as they walk you through the process of removing turf and giving your yard drought-proof curb appeal. Even if you’re not ready to remove all your grass, you can start small by transforming just one portion of your yard.

Episode 1: Pollinator Gardens

Drought-friendly native plants provide many benefits beyond saving water. Many attract pollinators – bees, birds, and bugs that help plants reproduce while delivering bursts of color to your garden. This episode introduces a variety of plants you can choose from, provides tips on planting, and explains why you’ll want these blooming beauties in your yard.​
