As the drought in California continues, more and more homeowners are taking a hard look at drought tolerant plants. Gone are the days when drought tolerant meant large stones and some cactus plants. Today we have a wide selection of unthirsty succulents, flowers, and grasses that can thrive with very little water and very little maintenance.
Most drought tolerant plants are considered to be native plants in their particular region. These plants were here long before others came and changed the landscape. They are hearty, used to little water, and can handle what elements the weather throw at them.
Many Californians are opting for lawn free yards. The cost and time to water and maintain a lawn and new water restrictions are making much more impractical to ow a lawn. There are many ways one can replace the lawn from synthetic turf to patios but here again drought tolerant plants can become a major component.
At San Diego Landcare Systems Inc. we have been designing and building beautiful, drought tolerant landscapes for over 30 years. We can turn your backyard into a beautiful outdoor living space that you can enjoy for years to come.
