Being able to sustain a lush and green home landscape in Southern California can be very difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. You can invest countless amounts of time and money into your landscaping, only to see it ruined with one of California’s droughts. Want a beautiful landscape design that’s affordable and requires almost no maintenance? Drought resistant gardens are the answer.
The Benefits of Drought Resistant Landscaping
- Affordable: Most drought resistant gardens are lighter on the wallet than traditional landscaping jobs. Most of the components and plants that are used are relatively cheap, making this a great option for those who want to work with a smaller budget.
- Hassle-Free: Drought resistant plants are designated so because they’re able to subsist for long periods of time with very minimal amounts of moisture. Conveniently, this means they require a lot less upkeep from you! If you’re not keen on daily garden maintenance, you’ll love a drought resistant setup.
- Uniquely Beautiful: There are a thousand ways to create a beautiful aesthetic with drought resistant plants. Whether you want to evoke a desert-like look, or something a lot more green, just know that you have plenty of options, and no matter what you choose, it will have a beautiful and unique look.
Anyone who lives in Southern California is all too aware of the droughts we frequently experience. Indeed, dry spells are common, and when there is a sudden, prolonged lack of moisture, many a California garden starts to suffer. If you’re tired of the upkeep and resources that are required to sustain your yard through these periods, it’s time to consider drought resistant landscape design!
What Makes A Landscape Design Drought Resistant?
Drought Resistant Plants: The best way to beat a lack of moisture is to choose plants that don’t require much moisture at all. Many plants laugh in the face of a drought, being able to sustain themselves for months and years on very minimal water. And we’re not just talking about cactuses — you’d be surprised to see how much variety there is in drought-resistant plants!
Creative Use of Rocks and Masonry: Another good way to resist droughts is to fill your yard with rocks and masonry in creative ways. The less greenery you have, the less affected you’ll be in a dry spell. This doesn’t have to look dull! We’ll show you countless ways that rocks and masonry can be beautifully arranged to create a dynamic and functional landscape design.
Functionality: One way to make for a more drought resistant landscape is to put emphasis on functionality — in other words, making your space useful for practical purposes. Tables, firepits, and grilling areas can effectively use up a lot of space while still leaving your yard looking gorgeous.
