We would like to thank you for your continued support and we are proud to be partners in the care of your garden. Here and Lou Penning Landscapes, we want to create spectacular places for you and your friends and family to enjoy. We are committed to being stewards of the environment by offering organic maintenance options and drought tolerant landscape designs.

As you have heard the governor has declared a mandatory 25% water reduction and has directed state agencies to enforce this. As of now there has been no word from our local water suppliers on cutting back or enforcement. We are asking you to help us conserve water. As of now all controllers are at the normal setting for this time of year with warmer weather coming.

Every job has a different set of circumstances and a different solution. Please give a call so that we can suggest some options for your property.

The following are a list of prohibited activities:

City of Napa:

  • Irrigation between the hours of 10am and 5pm, except for initial watering of newly planted landscaping or newly seeded lawns.

  • Irrigating landscaping during and within 48 hours of measurable rainfall

  • Overwatering lawns and landscapes such that excessive runoff flows onto adjacent property, walkways, roadways or parking lots.

  • Using water to wash driveways or sidewalks

The City of Napa currently offers “Cash for Grass” rebates if you choose to remove your lawn.

City of St. Helena is in a “Phase 1” water regulation which includes:

  • Expanding your landscape area and expanding irrigation into new areas of your property. Renovations of existing landscaped areas is OK as long as low water use plants are used.

  • Using water to wash driveways or sidewalks
