From their website:
In an effort to help Mar Vista become a model community for reduced water consumption, we seek to encourage others in the community to be inspired by and to adopt the water-saving solutions already in use by green trend-setters. Tours through dozens of Mar Vista gardens also offer the benefit of first-hand experience and the expertise of those already committed to reducing their water consumption profiles through the adoption of drought-resistant landscaping.
