Drought tolerant plants – wonderful garden ideas

A beautiful bed offers flowers without much water

  • Direct water runoff is typical of the footpaths and other landscapes. Plant a strip next to walkways to minimize moisture loss.
  • A quick way to reduce water loss: reduce the amount of grass that moisture requires, especially in hot months like July and August.

  •  When certain plants require a bit more water, plant them together in containers to focus their moisture needs.
  • Very tall containers raise the plants by adding height to the garden.
  • The easiest way to beat drought-prone garden areas is to plant flowers that don’t require a lot of water – lavender, for example.

Stone slabs increase the challenge of a drought tolerant garden

  •  Ground covers – here, thyme – provide a great way to conserve water that might be lost.
  • Two sculptures – a whimsical cat and a ball – offer drama in the place of striking, arid plants.
  • In any garden, mulch seeds are necessary for preserving moisture (and it keeps weeds down).
  • Many flowers have attractive blooms but require plenty of water; In the place of it, footpath elements – including flagstones and a series of circles – generate interest in themselves.
  • Once established, bushes and evergreen plants, including western thuja, require very little additional water – except in times of extreme drought.

  • Many drought tolerant plants don’t offer as attractive blooms, but replace them with interesting foliage like this flame grass.
  • The combination of grass and concrete in many strips doesn’t do much to combat water loss, but this planted version catches the water before it reaches the street.
  • Instead of the grass, choose drought tolerant plants that are more likely to prevent erosion.
  • Shade can also be a necessary element in the fight against water loss: the plants lose a lot of moisture from evaporation in the hot days.
  • Grass and Artemisia offer beautiful foliage in this planted bed.

  • A well may not be a first choice in a drought tolerant garden, but good design can make it possible to save water and reuse it.
  • Striking foliage, including the Japanese dwarf reed, provides dramatic looks.
  • To counteract the warming effect of stone slabs, the ground cover cools down the key areas like wide gaps between stones.
  •  Herbs – oregano and thyme, for example – are good drought-tolerant plants for a garden.
  • Planted and thatched areas on the hillside also provide water points to penetrate the ground.
