A xeriscape garden incorporates the use of drought-tolerant plants to conserve water. While xeriscaping has been around for a while, many homeowners don’t know much about it, especially when it comes to selecting plants.
Here are some xeriscape plant ideas you can use in your garden.
- Trees – you can plant xeriscape trees such as Gingko Biloba, Shagbark hickory, American elms, and red maples in your yard, to provide you with shade.
- Shrubs – Russian sage, heavenly bamboo, lantana, and burning bush are some examples of xeriscape shrubs that add color and texture to your yard.
- Ground covers – ground covers such as Yellow Alyssum, Ice Plant, and Candytuft add beauty to your landscape and are easy to maintain.
