Do I Want to Take Away the Green Lawn to go Green?

Some of my friends are tearing up their beautiful green front lawns and replacing the lawn with native plants. And of course, like all converts, they are trying to get me to do the same -to go green. Here is some of their logic. If you are paying $100 a month to have the front lawn mowed and then another fifty per month to water the lawn and more for the fertilizers and pest control? You are paying $1,800 per year for lawn. Actually you will be able to replace the lawn for about the costs of one year of lawn maintenance costs.

After visiting one of the local nurseries that feature native plants, I am beginning to be sold. I think after this non-winter we had, it has got me thinking seriously about it. That is as long as I can have color and not a desert look which I do not care for at all. I live on the Ventura Coastline and that is the type of landscape I enjoy.

Nothing is more beautiful than the Bougainvillea scattered among the landscapes of Ventura County. This plant which is native to South and Central America is the perfect solution for colorful drought resistant specimens in either your private homes or commercial properties.

Just look at the variety of colors!

Just look at the variety of colors!

It comes in a variety of colors and can be pruned to simulate a small tree, a scrub or even ground cover.

Remember it likes the stress of drought, so do not water often, as you will stop  the flowers from blooming.

Yes, There is a Banana Belt of Ventura County !

Cabanas at the Banana Belt. Another wonderful Home in Ventura County

Yes, it’s true and the old timers used to talk openly about the Banana Belt of Ventura County. It was located along the sloping areas along the Santa Clara River, down near the ocean around Saticoy. This is a unique micro-climate and probably has the only commercial banana farm in the western United States. The small area is a ribbon of land nestled near the oceanfront community of La Conchita, just north of Ventura California. La Conchita is a small community located on U.S. Route 101, just southeast of the Santa Barbara county line.

The area is considered perfect for growing bananas, is rimmed with eastern cliffs that keep the ocean breezes circulating. The colder night air from the inland mountains is blocked from settling in.  It’s much milder here on winter nights..almost 8-10 degrees warmer. The cliffs are the foothills of the Los Padres National Forest and they provide the “air drainage” needed to keep the frost at bay.
Limited banana varieties will grow in other areas of Ventura County, but require more water and fertilizer.ban

Throwback Thursday! This image is of Ventura in 1877. An incredible amount of things have changed. This was made before the Mission was built and long before City Hall. What do you see missing?
