Green and gorgeous: The Tesla approach to high-end landscaping


Many high-end buyers are skipping the thirsty yard and opting for native plants, smart materials and usable square footage.

In the same way drivers of luxury cars are trading in their Mercedes for Teslas, owners of high-end properties are abandoning their lush lawns and exotic outdoor plants for ecologically sustainable, environmentally conscious landscapes.

Across the U.S., landscape architects are being asked to create outdoor spaces that reduce water and energy consumption and utilize more locally sourced materials.

While some of this is driven by regulation, in many places it is simply seen as the right thing to do.
