March Air Force Base Goes Xeriscape!
In the Spring of 2012, Lt. COL Jason Czech hired A1 Landscape & Design, together with Susan Frommer of Plants for Dry Places to design and install a water-efficient landscape for the Western Aerial Defense building located at March Air Force Base.
Colonel Czech wanted a newer and smarter landscape that would not only improve the buildings “curb appeal” but save money at the same time through water conservation. The water efficient or “xeriscape” was created with a series of considerations that included selective reduction of lawn area, drought tolerant plants, ground cover, large boulders, decomposed granite paths, forest mulch, and a more efficient irrigation system.
Phase I was completed last year and phase II is scheduled for completion in October of this year.
