ROI Calculation

Landscaping significantly impacts human and pet health, the environment, and public infrastructure. It also impacts our budgets! The lush, leafy, low-water Authentic Foothill Gardens at Sierra Madre City Hall generate significant savings over a traditional landscape, gravelscape, or synthetic lawn.

Savings can include:

  • 100 percent of the annual flower budget
  • 100 percent of the toxic chemical fertilizer budget
  • 100 percent of the toxic chemical pesticide budget
  • 100 percent of soil amendment budget
  • 81 percent of the time spent on maintenance
  • 75 percent of the funds used for mower petrol
  • 60-80 percent of the water previously needed
  • 63 percent of fees associated with garden waste
  • 15-50 percent of the energy dedicated to climate control
