Selecting the Stars of The Garden...
Researching online for different landscape design sure helped to know which plants to choose. One of the most significant point in landscaping is to select plants that grow natural in your region, for us the most important characteristic was to have drought tolerant plants, that would love the heat of Cali. I had my doubts about a drought tolerant landscape I pictured myself singular kinds of cactus and those dry looking dessert plants, I was not too enthusiastic to have a desert looking front yard. To my surprise there are beautiful looking shrubs that bloom throughout the year, palms and beautiful grasses that are tolerate the deficiency of water. I am thrilled with the tropical feeling these plants put on the air of our front yard. So do not think twice about water efficient plants if you are landscaping in California they are the way to go, smart and appealing!
