Riverside Metropolitan Museum

Riverside Metropolitan Museum

Why a Waterwise Garden?

Since 1914, this location has been a prominent part of Riverside’s downtown. In the design for a new landscape, the Museum worked closely with the City of Riverside Planning Department, creating a plan that would compliment the building’s architecture and also harmonize with the surroundings.

  • This project demonstrates good citizenship by a public agency and is a valuable example of a beautiful alternative in urban landscape design.
  • Instead of areas of turf grass, slow-growing trees, flowering shrubs, ornamental grasses and perennials are used, reducing routine landscape maintenance needs.
  • Drought-tolerant plants conserve water by requiring less frequent irrigation and limiting runoff.
