Landscape Design & Construction

StopWaste works with landscape professionals, property owners and public agency staff in Alameda County to promote Bay-Friendly landscape practices that improve soil health, reduce waste, save water, and help keep our watersheds and our communities healthy.

Landscapes designed, built and maintained in accordance with Bay-Friendly principles and practices can achieve: 

  • 50% water savings
  • 30–70% maintenance labor savings
  • 70–80% reduced runoff
  • 53 tons/acre greenhouse gas reduction, equal to taking about 10 passenger cars off the road
