These are a free downloadable resources sponsored by multiple agencies. Download landscaping plans here.

The Habitat Corridor Project’s mission is to create and promote California native plant restoration gardens in the urban environment. They design and install California native plant gardens replacing lawns and traditional water intensive landscapes. They also restore wildlife habitat and support biodiversity in the urban landscape. The organization sponsors talks, workshops and gardening tours.

They maintain a corridor of California habitat supporting landscapes in Sebastopol, starting at the Sebastopol Chamber of Commerce and the Sebastopol Historical Society then on to the Perennial Meadow at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. You can take a self-guided tour of the corridor to find inspiration for your own garden.
