California Friendly Homes

In the California Friendly Home, smart and sustainable landscaping is the most visible feature, with outdoor spaces designed in harmony with the surrounding environment using beautiful and less-than-thirsty plants, state-of-the-art irrigation controllers and precision sprinkler heads.
