Replace water guzzling plants with ones suited to your region’s rainfall and growing conditions. Drought tolerant plants, once established, require less water than their moisture loving counterparts. Make sure the plants thrive in the soils, temperature extremes and other growing conditions in your region. Avoid invasive plants that may thrive in drought but soon take over your garden and eventually nearby natural areas. These green menaces crowd out our native plants essential to wildlife and the overall ecosystem.
