Landscape Design Templates


We’re Developing Free, Easy-to-Permit Landscape Design Templates for the Fire Rebuild

The Partnership is developing eight scalable landscape design templates for the fire rebuild. These free front yard designs will be scalable to fit landscaped areas up to 2,500 square feet, ready-to-permit, and in compliance with local Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinances. The eight front yard plans will come in two of each of these styles:

  • Sonoma Native/Adaptive – an emphasis on native and fire safer plants
  • Sonoma Eco-Edible – a mix of edible and habitat plantings that maximize sustainability
  • Sonoma Contemporary – a modern, minimalistic and clean look that is easy to maintain
  • Sonoma Cottage – a Sonoma version of a cottage garden with natural materials and colorful plantings
