San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2009
Surrounded by over 800 acres of preserved open space, Bridle Ridge in Carmel Country Highlands is the perfect setting to showcase 'A New California Garden', a presentation by environmental designer and master gardener, Linda Whitney. The free event will take place on Sunday, April 26th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Bridle Ridge, a new neighborhood of single-family detached homes by Pardee Homes (http://www.pardeehomes.com). In addition to the California-friendly landscape presentation, there will be information about water conservation and the benefits of owning a solar and energy efficient home.
"Bridle Ridge's distinctive charm is characterized by Pardee Homes' exclusive LivingSmart® program of earth-friendly features and options that encourage conservation or use of recycled or sustainable resources," said Rachel Collins, sales director for Pardee Homes. "This is the ideal location to demonstrate drought tolerant landscaping. Linda Whitney, who is a popular speaker at The Water Conservation Garden at Cuyamaca College and a winner of the 5th Annual San Diego County California Friendly Landscape contest in 2008, will be on hand with a presentation and outdoor plant demonstration and tour. With mandatory water conservation on the horizon, this is a great opportunity to get advice from an expert."
"Saving water is very important because we have a water problem here that is only going to get worse," said Linda Whitney. Whitney will also offer attendees landscape design ideas and the 'Nifty Fifty' poster of plants for a water-smart landscape at the free presentation on April 26th.
A representative from SunPower®, an innovative and established leader in the design and manufacture of high-performing solar electric solutions for residential retrofit, new homes and commercial customers worldwide, will also be on hand to answer questions.
