Let’s try out these drought-tolerant landscaping tips.

For those of us who live in dry areas that are prone to drought, it’s in our best interest to cut down on the amount of water we use in and around our homes.  One of the ways that we can conserve is by implementing drought-tolerant landscaping in our yards.  Here are some suggestions.

  • Choosing the Right Plants

To cut down on the amount of water we use in our yards, we ought to consider choosing the best plants for the job.  We can start by selecting a variety of plants that are native to our areas.  Because these plants are accustomed to our particular climate, most likely, they can stand up to the heat and survive on less water.  It’s also suggested to consider planting things like cacti, succulents, and other plants that typically do not require much watering.

  • Eliminating Lawns

A key feature in many drought-tolerant landscapes is the absence of grass.  Instead of planting grass that requires a lot of water and upkeep, we might want to weigh the pros and cons of using things like stones and pavers, mulch, sand, and gravel as ground cover.  These non-living elements will obviously save water while also adding a unique touch that will set our yards apart.
