How To Plant A Waterless Garden
In recent years drought and water scarcity has become one of the central topics within the bigger issue of changing climate. And while water is a life essential there are some things we can do to lessen its consumption and wasteful use.
If you think your lawn is something you can absolutely not forgo, one look at these gorgeous landscapes might just change your mind.
Creating A Waterless Garden
A beautiful stone path planted with colorful succulents and other drought-resistant plants at the sides is a gorgeous look for a front and back yard alike.
Aside from succulents you can plant showy Yucca trees and shrubs along with a great number of cacti of various shapes and sizes.
You can also cover the ground with white gravel between the plants if you don’t want to plant ground cover. Although you can find some drought and heat tolerant ground cover plants like Moss Flox and Snow in Summer.
Allium ‘Millenium’ and Salvia May Night will give your landscape a pop of purple while Salvia ‘Raspberry Delight’ will add red accents to your garden and Amsonia, blue.
That’s not to say you can’t collect rainwater and use water reraining measures when preping or mainting soil. Some of these plants would need some water, but mostly you can rely on natural rainfalls to keep them fed and happy.
