Thanks to pre-planned packages by High Country Gardens, it doesn’t take a green thumb or a degree in horticulture to plant a water-wise landscape. Twelve plans, with highly descriptive monikers such as Sunset Over Gray and Blue, The Jumbo Waterwise Garden and The Xeric Aroma Garden, offer a wide variety of solutions
And if xeriscaping conjures up visions of dry, barren vistas, think again. These water-wise landscape packages are beautifully designed with an emphasis on color, texture and aroma. For homeowners who want turf, the Legacy Buffalo Grass Companion Garden includes a lawn that requires 45 – 75% less water than Kentucky bluegrass. For hot, sunny narrow areas such as borders against garage walls or driveways, The Inferno Strip, by Lauren Springer, is a lush collection of hardy plants that thrive in adverse conditions. A visit to the High Country Gardens web site is well worth the time.
