Drought tolerant landscaping isn’t just a fad meant to curb the drought in California, it’s a landscape design that’s been around for decades. Drought tolerant landscaping need not be cactus and rocks as there are plenty of California natives and California friendly plants that are colorful and beautiful year round.

Low-maintenance drought tolerant landscaping doesn’t have to be a sea of brown or grey.  Adequate watering for the first couple of months after the planting is necessary.

Native and California friendly plants are not only attractive and water wise, they also restore biodiversity by providing habitat, attracting beneficial insects, birds and butterflies.  Most of our drought tolerant landscape design ideas incorporate drought friendly or drought tolerant trees, plants and landscaping that are very beautiful.  Mediterranean gardens fit nicely in the quest for drought tolerant landscaping because the gardens are adapted to, again, wet winters and hot, dry summers.

Desert landscaping or drought tolerant landscaping, also known as xeriscaping and water-friendly landscaping in some areas. Xerascaping and desert landscaping has the focus on minimum water usage for drought tolerant or drought resistent plants.  All over California and the western portion of the United States, homeowners are facing challenges in keeping their properties looking decent during the current drought.


Bioswales are landscape elements designed to remove silt and pollution from surface runoff water. They consist of a swaled drainage course with gently sloped sides (less than six percent) and filled with vegetation, compost and/or riprap.  From: wikipedia.org
