Harvest Landscape is part of the SmartScape team of experts that has developed a ground-breaking approach to sustainable landscape now taking root throughout Orange County.

The model program, called SmartScape, is a comprehensive and systematic approach to creating and maintaining sustainable landscapes in Southern California. Developed by a team of experts in partnership with Orange County Coastkeeper, SmartScape reflects a holistic approach to conserving resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, restricting the use of pesticides and fertilizers, and establishing year-round beauty in landscapes that harvest water to eliminate dry weather urban runoff.
