As a way to conserve water, residents in Los Angeles County have figured out ways to collect the rainwater.

Monrovia resident Scott Boyer uses two 55 gallon containers to capture rainwater that will be used for the plants in his yard.

He said water flows from his roof into the bins when it rains, and the water collection cuts down on his use.

Plants at the Los Angeles County Arboretum receive their water through moisture from "lasagna mulching," a method that uses layers of mulch to retain moisture in the soil.

Watch the clip above to see how the mulch process is done and how beautiful the plants stay thanks to the water-saving method.
