4 Reasons To Choose Drought-Tolerant Landscaping


Having beautiful landscaping is so important for your home’s curb appeal—but it can get so expensive in the Bay Area because of our long dry season.

However, there is a way to have the best of both worlds: drought-tolerant landscaping! Here are four reasons why you should consider it:


  1. Saves Water.

Drought-tolerant landscaping inherently uses less water. Our climate is quite dry for much of the year, so having plants that naturally acclimate to desert conditions help us conserve our precious water.

  1. Saves Money.

Drought-tolerant plants save you money in a few ways. Of course you’ll save money on your water bill, but you’ll also save money on replacing plants that don’t survive the dry season. You’ll even save money on maintenance and upkeep!

  1. Offers Beautiful Diversity.

There is a staggering variety of drought-tolerant plants. Dramatic cacti and succulents are popular choices, but there are also beautiful floral options like lavender or our very own state flower, the California Poppy, which can add stunning pops of color.

  1. Makes Opportunities For Creativity.

Take time to create stunning yard art with these versatile plantings. You can play around with color, texture, and pattern in both the plants you choose and the materials around them, like gravel or mulch.


These are just some of many reasons to choose drought-tolerant landscaping for your home. If you need help finding a talented landscaper to execute your vision, don’t hesitate to reach out!
