Building a Green Home: Benefits of Native Vegetation


Pardee Homes re-vegetated more than 700,000 square feet of slope back to native vegetation in our LivingSmart Homes at Fair Oaks Ranch community.

This brings many benefits. among them, the opportunity for reduced water costs and maintenance by the homeowner association. Native slopes are sustainable and reduce water demand for the community.

Native vegetation also adds to the neighborhood aesthetics, attracting songbirds and butterflies, and the vibrant hues and textures create a colorful and appealing landscape for homeowners to enjoy.
