Knowing the Moisture Needs of Your Garden
When it comes to plants, there are some that require more moisture than others.
It is often during a dry spell that we become more aware of a plants moisture needs because this is when it is noticed, but the better time to think about a plants moisture needs is when you are planning the landscape.
There are some areas in the landscape that may be drier than others or are not within easy reach of a sprinkler system, and these areas would be better suited for drought tolerant plants.
Another option would be to put in a xeriscape which is a landscape using drought tolerant plants and water conservation methods.
