Summary
  • "A guide to growing beautiful gardens in drought-prone areas utilizing minimal water for maximum results."--Publisher information
  • With climate change, water rationing, and drought on the rise, conserving water is more important than ever - but that doesn't mean your gardening options are limited to cacti and rocks. The Water-Saving Garden provides gardeners and homeowners with a diverse array of techniques and plentiful inspiration for creating outdoor spaces that are so beautiful and inviting, it's hard to believe they are water-thrifty. Including a directory of 100 plants appropriate for a variety of drought-prone regions of the country, this accessible and contemporary guide is full of must-know information on popular gardening topics like native and drought-tolerant plants, rainwater harvesting, greywater systems, permeable paving, and more.--Cover
