About - A Shelkie Tao Company

shelkie tao garden smallerIn its fifth year, California is still in a drought.  The Santa Clara Valley Water District requests everyone to reduce water usage by 20%.   As more than 50% of residential water usage is consumed outdoors, letting the green go brown is one of the quickest ways to achieve the 20% target.  However, the new yard does not need to be brown; a garden full of water efficient plants can be as beautiful and enjoyable as a green lawn.

Let me know whether this will work.  Thank you so much!

They can help with the design, plant choice, and answer all maintenance questions necessary to get the garden you need for todays drought and climate impacted environment.
