The Water Conservations Lanadscaping Act (Assembly Bill 1881 aka AB 1881) has future benefits to all California residents through conserving water by dictating the types of irrigation devices which can be sold in California to ensure performance standards. The new bill will also limit the plant palette to low water consumption varieties for all new or refurbished projects exceeding 2,500 sf. With the implementation of the new Act there will be a required inspection and approval of landscaping plans and construction by municipal planning departments. While this will likely add more time and money required for a new landscape project there will be more rebates and incentives available for sustainable landscaping.
