Symantec Corporation and Acterra, a Palo Alto-based environmental nonprofit, are teaming up to install a California native plant garden at Symantec’s Mountain View campus.

The purpose of the project is to provide a lovely garden that provides quality habitat for local wildlife while demonstrating sustainable landscaping practices. Sustainable landscaping is a term used to describe an attractive environment that is in balance with the local climate and requires minimal resource inputs, such as fertilizer, pesticides, gasoline, time, and water.
