Sacramento Area Drought Tolerant Landscape Design Ideas
If you are looking for drought tolerant landscaping in the Sacramento area, we have the solutions you are looking for here at Capital Landscape!
California has been suffering under a huge drought for years now, and there is no telling when it is going to end. We are hoping for plenty of rain to come and break this drought, but even then we will have a long time of needing normal rainfall before the ground water begins to replenish and things start to get back to normal.
In this environmental crisis, many Sacramento residents are looking for ways to be more eco-friendly and conscientious about their water usage. One area where we waste huge amounts of water is in our lawns and landscaping. There are great opportunities to reduce or practically eliminate water usage for your Sacramento area yard with drought tolerant landscaping. Here are some of our favorite drought tolerant landscaping tricks to use here at Capital Landscape Design:
Rock and paving designs
Whether you are talking about gravel pathways, paved patios, retaining walls, or paver stones, every inch that you can take up with rock or with paving is an inch that does not have to be watered. And artistically designed rock features or paving elements are striking and impressive. This is a great way to reduce water needs, beautify your property, increase your property value, and make your yard more usable and functional, all at the same time!
Drought friendly native plants
Many plants that are native to California are very drought tolerant. You can save a lot of water by replacing your thirsty plants with drought hardy varieties or with native alternatives. As an added bonus, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful landscaping style with interesting plants and colorful wild flowers that grow abundantly in this area.
If you are thinking of replacing your landscaping plants with drought friendly, native species, keep in mind that new plants, even plants that thrive in deserts, require a certain amount of watering regularly until their roots are well established. Follow the instructions for care for your new plants and expect to start seeing your biggest water savings in about a year, after the plants’ roots are established and the plants are clearly growing healthy and strong.
Succulents are a particular variety of native species and drought resistant plants that are especially popular and beautiful. Succulents include cactus species and well known varieties such as aloe vera, but the category of succulents includes much, much more than just cacti.
Succulents can be huge and impressive, or small and charming. They are often colorful and interesting to look at. If you are looking for a way to add visual interest to your landscaping, save water, and decrease the amount of work you have to put into your landscape care, succulents are the perfect way to go.
As with all other species of plants, you need to water your succulents fairly regularly until their roots are established. Be sure to follow the care instructions, and plan to save the most water starting about a year after you put the succulents in.
If you can’t stand the idea of doing away with your beautiful green lawn, you can have your cake and eat it too! With artificial grass you can have the look of a healthy, gorgeous grass lawn (you won’t even be able to tell it’s not natural!), performance far surpassing natural grass (you never have to mow it, and your dog will never come in muddy or dirty again), and the huge savings that come from spending absolutely nothing on water for your back yard or front yard!
Here at Capital Landscape Design, we have installed many artificial grass lawns and drought friendly landscapes throughout the Sacramento area. Give us a call for a free consultation on your own drought friendly and water saving landscape!
