Catch the Rain and Water Savings
( with West Basin's FREE Rain Barrel Program)

Help conserve water in this drought with a FREE rain barrel.

Collecting and reusing rainwater reduces the amount of water flowing into storm drains, local waterways, and ensures that every drop of water is being used efficiently.

Save Money. Save Water.

Great discounts on select varieties of low water use plants. The Home Depot and their vendors have partnered to offer special deals on select varieties of low water use plants at each of their parking lot events throughout the South Bay.

For more information on these plant fairs, visit Free Kid's Workshops designed for children, ages 5 - 12, between 9am - Noon.
