Water protection is especially important for people during dry periods, but it is important all the time. One way to save water is to choose the plants that match your site. By choosing plants whose needs correspond to the residential landscape designs, you will save yourself money and effort.
Plants resistant to drought
These plants are adapted to regions with frequent drought or to soil with low water holding capacity. Once established, they can be water added to the landscape - but not if they are sales and plant rental in low-lying areas where water tends to accumulate. Under these conditions, they can quickly contract root diseases and other problems related to pests.
Grouping of plants
It often happen that landscape with woody plants (trees, shrubs and some roots) are planted randomly on a wide lawn. Although it may be normal, it is not perfect. It is true that turf grass and wood ornamental plants have different water needs (and others), so it is easy to waste water in such a landscape.
You can save water and save money by grouping plants according to their needs. If you have a zoned irrigation system, you will be able to irrigate different areas with different amounts. Limit the number of plants with high water demand by placing them for maximum visual effect.
In the case of sunny recreational areas, grass is an excellent choice. But most types of grass do not grow well in dense shade or on steep slopes. Instead of planting grass in these places, try groundcovers. There are many different options, many of which can also offer a green carpet.
Fast growing plants may seem attractive, but these types of plants require frequent pruning and usually more water than slower growing plants. Slow growing plants can take more time to fill your residential landscape designs, but ultimately may be less work.
