4 Ideas for Drought-Tolerant Landscaping

In the middle of a drought, wasting water is the worst thing you can do. Many people opt to turn their landscaping into a drought-tolerant design, and you can do the same. The ideas below will help you out. Need more ideas? Let’s talk! We’re here to help.


1. Gravel Instead Of Grass

Some homeowners think that replacing their grass with gravel is a death sentence for their yard. They believe it will look tacky and bring down property value. However, this is a poor misconception that needs to be erased. Gravel can add a touch of style to landscaping, and it leaves room for many possibilities. In addition, with no grass to mow and water, you save a lot of money and time.

2. Don’t Be Afraid To Use Statues and Other Decorations

If there is a gap in your landscaping, you can cover it up with a statue or other ornament. A visit to your local nursery will provide you with several options. One of them is bound to sync with your tastes and preferences. If nothing else, you can find inspiration among the selection.

3. Invest In Plants That Can Stand the Heat and Dry Atmosphere

If you want to have plants in your yard during a drought, you need plants that can withstand heat and thrive without help for weeks at a time. The purple coneflower and beard tongue are a few examples. Do the research before you get in too deep and invest in something.

4. Make a Patio

A patio is a wonderful place to entertain or relax at the end of a long day. Best of all, it helps cut down on the amount of lawn that you have to care for. All you have to worry about is what furniture you should put there.
