Grangetto's opens demonstration garden in Escondido

ESCONDIDO — Grangetto’s Farm & Garden Supply recently finished a landscape remodel at their Escondido location.

“We are extremely pleased with how the landscape turned out and we want to show our community and customers how easy it is to save water,” says owner Kevin Grangetto.

The results speak for themselves.”

Jesch, owner of Daylily Hill Nursery ( and a 30-year veteran in horticulture, took on the landscape design challenge.

“I wanted Kevin and their customers to see that drought-tolerant doesn’t necessarily mean only using California natives, succulents or cactus,” said Jesch. “There are many options in landscape design in dealing with the impending water restrictions that we are faced with in Southern California.”

Installation of the new landscape design was achieved by Final Touch Landscape (
