We are continuing to get much needed rain in Big Bear this week with an increasing chance of afternoon thunderstorms through the weekend. This is a beautiful time of year in the mountains and if you haven’t experienced it, I highly recommend coming up and cooling off.

Refreshing afternoon thunderstorms are a possibility this weekend in Big Bear Lake, but not to worry, they usually only last a short time and then it clears up once again. Highs will be in the low 80’s. Perfect temps for your mountain getaway!

This weekend marks the start of the Big Bear Cycling Festival, which will have cycling information, vendors, rides and activities for the whole family. The event lasts for an entire week, so be sure to check out the schedule of events which I posted in Tuesday’s post HERE. There will also be live music at The Cave, some Old Miner’s Days events and the 3rd Annual ‘Spirits of the West’ Brewfest at the Convention Center. This is a family event, with a selection of Root Beers to sample as well as adult spirits.

If you have room in your heart and your home for a furry, 4-legged family member, be sure to head over to Captain John’s Marina on Saturday for the Dog Dayz of Summer Event. There will be dogs that are looking for new families and fun for the family!

To finish off this week’s topic of Xeriscape, here are 7 informative facts about this water-conserving method of landscaping:

  • Approximately 50 percent of annual water production is used for landscape irrigation.
  • By following the “7 Principles of Xeriscape,” between 50 and 75 percent of the water used in traditional landscapes can be conserved.Xeriscape house
  • By grouping plants by water need, plants are healthier, easier to maintain and less susceptible to disease, requiring less use of pesticides and fertilizers.
  • A good xeriscape not only will save water, it also will increase your property value by as much as 15 percent.
  • There are different styles of xeriscape – natural, cottage, alternative turf, mountain and informal.
  • A typical community could increase its total vegetated area while simultaneously reducing water use significantly, primarily by replacing turf areas with trees and ground cover.
  • Many xeriscape designs include plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

If you are in Big Bear Lake this weekend, be sure to take the FREE Xeriscape Garden Tour. You will get tons of information and be able to see several examples of Xeriscape in action.
