      I had a chance to visit the campus and was amazed at the beauty of the local plant material. Being in the landscaping industry it was great to see the smart usage of a local low water consumption plant to both reduce cost and impact on the environment. Hopefully your broad scale adoption of this technique will alter consumer demand for high impact plants and change our industry for the better! great work!
