The Benefits of Native Plant Landscaping

There’s a good chance the drought will be sticking around for a while – it’s not clear how long, but scientists seem to believe we’re in this for the long-haul.

For homeowners with natural lawns, now is the time to take advantage of water rebates that help replace natural lawn with more drought tolerant landscaping, including native plants, succulents, and artificial grass.

Benefits of Native Plant Landscaping

We recommend a combination of all three.

One of the benefits a lawn provides that cactus, stone, and other native landscaping doesn’t provide is the space to play and party. Whether you have kids or you want space to hang out with friends, artificial grass provides a welcoming space that looks great all year without the need of water. With that said, adding succulents and native plants around the perimeter of your landscaping can add a nice splash of color and native style.

Many home gardeners this time of year begin to think of ways to beautify their surroundings with the introduction of new or different plant species. An option with many benefits is to incorporate native plants into your landscape.
