Bay Friendly Landscaping is a whole systems approach to the design, construction and maintenance of the landscape to support the integrity of one of California’s most magnificent ecosystems, the San Francisco Bay watershed. The Bay Friendly Landscaping program is now supported by ReScape California.

✔ Landscaping in harmony with the natural conditions of the San Francisco Bay watershed
✔ Reducing waste and recycling materials
