Here's how 'xeriscaping' your yard can help save water and money

So far, Northern California's water year is off to a promising start. Earlier this week, parts of the Sierra picked up 12" to 18" of snow while Valley rain helped to dampen the ground. More rain and snow are in the forecast over the next week, but on the heels of three straight years of drought, it's going to take more than a couple of storms to put the state's water supply in good standing. That means water conservation will continue to be top of mind for climate experts, water managers and state leaders.
