Advice from the Owner
My waterwise landscape is much more interesting and beautiful than my lawn! I love it! Though it took awhile to establish with small, inexpensive plants and seeds, it has grown so much and filled in so well that I actually am out of room for new plantings! I have begun removing older waterwise plants (russian sage) and replacing them with native waterwise plants (Leadplant). It is very easy to care for as I mostly just weed now and then. Very little time spent watering and I never have to feed anything!Back to Inspiration Hub
