KPBS recently ran a story showcasing the Mediterranean, desert and California native gardens in Helix’s demonstration landscape.

If you haven’t seen our demonstration landscape, come and take a look. We built these gardens to show you beautiful alternatives to a big lawn, and plants that need a lot less water and don’t mind a week of hot, dry weather.

The three gardens are right next to the sidewalk along the front, side and back of our administration office at 7811 University Avenue in La Mesa. Markers show the name of each plant and you can scan the QR code to see a plant’s mature size and sun and water needs.
