How To Have A Drought Resistant Lawn
In case you haven&apost heard, July 2012 was the hottest month recorded in the contiguous US since weather reporting started in 1895. And with this comes dryness and droghts that affect not only the vegetation along highways and byways, but quite often your very own front and back yards.
At System Pavers, we had "hot" in mind when we created our comprehensive outdoor living system. In addition to "hot" designs for walkways, patios, decks, BBQ stations, fire pits and more, we planned for hot weather that impacts lawns and gardens and our environment. This is why we offer our waterless turf that fives that forever green touch to your landscaping despite water conditions, and design expertise to help you create environmentally gardening systems, conserving nature&aposs most precious resource, drought or no drought. Xeriscape gardens ideally consist of stone walkways and pathways surrounded by hearty plants that thrive on drip irrigation vs. soil saturation, and raised garden beds made of stone. With paving stones, you can create tiered well-drained garden boxes connect to a central drip system, and add a water feature that recirculates existing water, adding a fresh touch to your environment without taxing any further resources.
And the drought-hearty plants for xeriscape gardens are limitless when it comes to colors, shapes and textures. With the pinks, yellow, orange and more variations of Ganzania, Mimulus, Agastache perennials and dozens of other options, you don&apost have to settle for a garden full of cacti to be water responsible year round.
