La Plaza Garden is a water-efficient demonstration garden that conserves valuable resources. The La Plaza Garden was designed by Sustainable Living Designs, a well known permaculture design firm.
Located in the heart of Cotati, the garden features drought-tolerant plants, water harvesting techniques, and habitat for birds, butterflies and other beneficial insects.
To establish the La Plaza Garden, the plants were initially hand-watered after planting in November and December 2008. The plants have not required water since this initial establishment period, but will have a drip irrigation system installed in May 2009.
