Drought Resistant Landscapes for the Sacramento Area

Here are some drought resistant landscapes that I thought I would share since we are right in the middle of a severe drought in the Sacramento Region.  Water rates are planned to increase, so we all need to do our part in conserving water.

A drought tolerant landscape consists of plants that require very little to no water.  There area a large number of trees, plants and shrubs that you can find that will work. By getting rid of your lawn and replacing it with low-water-needs shrubs, you will drastically reduce your water usage and a whole lot of maintenance. Say goodbye to mowing every weekend in the heat!  Take a look at some of the landscapes below for ideas.

See a list of drought tolerant flowers and plants below the pictures!
