Kaha Gardens in Kailua, on the windward side of Oahu is a living example of how individual homeowners can help improve the local environment through the use of native vegetation and xeriscape gardens. The project replaced grass and invasive species along 150 yards of stream bank with native Hawaiian plants which can be used for soil stabilization, bio-filtration and water conservation. Visitors can walk the garden pathways to see how plantings might appear in their own backyard.
