Ocean Friendly Gardens "apply CPR-Conservation, Permeability and Retention-to revive our oceans and watersheds":
Conservation - of water; fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides (water pollutants); energy (moving water around the state is the #1 user of energy); and reduce the use of gas-powered maintenance machinery (air pollutants) through use of native and/or climate adapted plants;
Permeability -increased, utilizing materials that allow water to percolate into the soil such as with a driveway, walkway, and patio;
Retention -devices installed such as a bio-swale, drycreek, dry wall, etc.
