“Starting with Spanish Trails in 2008 and currently working with Summerlin, we’ve proven that xeriscape does not have to look dry and barren. One of my goals working with the Board is to bring a water smart design to Green Valley Ranch that maintains the style and character of our community that is also fiscally responsible. I’m excited for this once in a generation opportunity to meet the challenges in our maturing community.”
