Our Company

California Wild was built to bridge the landscaping industry. And give you a shortcut to great water-saving plant combo’s. Self-install is recommended for experienced gardeners only. So hire help if you’re new to digging holes. 

Our plants and lawns come directly from local growers to your driveway. From wholesale nurseries previously only contractors and architects had access to. Which means a bigger selection of specialty plants at competitive prices. Save water, save fossil fuel, save pollinator habitat and more! Right in your own backyard. 

We believe plants can heal the planet. And that grassroots ecosystem rebuilding is the main thing that will! We are always asking how to make California more sustainable. And now, more than ever, that starts with landscaping. 

Favorite Facts About Lawn Alternatives

Are you as shocked as we are by watching lawns die in such record numbers this summer in California? Water conservation has adopted some extreme tactics as of late. So if you're thinking about replacing the grass here's a few good things to know.

  • Groundcover Lawns like California native succulent Phylla nodiflora are common lawn replacements in other parts of the world like Japan but are just becoming fashionable here in California
  • Native Lawns are awesome. Just be aware they have seasonal dormancy cycles. Most get brown patches in the peak of summer while Buffalo Grass (Bouteloua gracilis) gets patchy in winter. California lawn grass breeders are working hard to create new fully green low-water options but it'll be a few years
  • Artifical Turf exacerbates climate heating and creates huge amounts of non-recyclable plastic - think 20 water bottles per sq.ft. - so don't use it on a large scale. And it's on it's way to being outlawed in many parts of the world due to the toxicity level of the microplastics it generates. Keep turf areas as small as physically possible when needed.
  • Part Shade helps your lawn areas seriously reduce their water needs and enhance greenery. Plant open canopied shade trees at the edges of lawns or utilize existing shade in your yard wherever possible.
