Water-Wise Landscaping Topic of November Garden Club Meeting

Press release posted 10/27/12 – Jorge Pena, owner of Mama Mountain Landscapes, Inc., is known for designing and implementing unusual, drought-tolerant landscapes that add function and artistic value to a site. Dedicated to educating residents about creative ways to beautify spaces while reducing maintenance costs and water consumption, Jorge will discuss the benefits of water conservation in the landscape and how to implement it. Since plant selection is so important to this type of gardening, Jorge will bring examples of his favorite flora and distribute information about the local nurseries that carry them.

Specializing in drought-tolerant landscapes, the company uses the latest products and plant varieties to create living works of art including hardscaping and water features. Jorge is looking forward to answering our questions and has experience in landscape design and construction, hillside restoration, erosion control, grading and drainage.
