The goals of the Green Landscape Group (GLG) are to educate about and advocate for sustainable (green) landscape practices and conservation of water resources in Rossmoor. Additionally, we hope to increase the awareness and appreciation of the trees and landscapes around us.
We promote landscape with climate appropriate, summer-dry plants, and especially California native plants, when possible. We also advocate for the healthy growth of plants through proper placement, spacing, and pruning.
Additionally, we advocate for green landscape maintenance practices that include recycling plant debris on site to reduce landfill waste and energy usage and minimizing the use of harmful chemicals.
Landscape irrigation is the predominant user of Rossmoor’s potable water and therefore a major focus of our group.
Good water conservation practices and implementation of the above procedures are cost-saving measures that can save us all money, through the use of less water and lessening costly maintenance practices.
