Drought Tolerant Landscape?

Drought tolerant landscapes are landscapes that need little to minimal water for plants to survive and look great. Drought tolerant landscapes combine low-maintenance plants with visually appealing rock installations, patios, curb appeal, and more to create gardens that can withstand even the driest of heat.

Drought Tolerant landscape design, also referred to as xeriscaping is a great choice for people in hotter climates that often have to deal with the effect of droughts and regional water limitations.

In Sacramento, droughts are a very real problem, but that doesn’t mean your outdoor spaces should suffer. There are tons of attractive plants and green landscaping options that can be used to make your garden area look great without the need for sprinkler systems or other irrigation methods.

Creating a drought-tolerant yard landscape can help you to make the most out of your outdoor spaces without having to worry about the environment, water usage, or excessive maintenance.

Benefits of a Drought Tolerant Landscape

There are many perks to opting for drought-tolerant landscaping, particularly in Sacramento. Here are some of the key benefits.

Reduced water usage

Of course, the main benefit to choosing drought-tolerant landscaping options is reduced water usage. When designing a drought-tolerant landscape, our experts focus on selecting California native plants that can survive and thrive with little to no water. This means there’ll be no need to install an expensive sprinkler system or waste money on excessive water bills.

Not only that, but when the drought hits, you can save water and you won’t need to worry about how to keep your garden in tip-top shape, as your plants will easily make it through without any extra care or attention.

Thankfully, there are tons of drought-tolerant plants that you can choose from that will add some visual appeal to your landscape. Popular drought-resistant plants include succulents like cacti and aloe vera.

Less Maintainance

Another big perk of drought-tolerant landscaping is reduced maintenance. If you’ve ever had a lawn, you’ll know how hard it can be to keep it looking presentable.

However, with drought-resistant landscaping, you don’t have to worry too much about mowing, preening, or watering thirsty plants. Many drought-resistant spaces include paved areas, rock and sand installations, and patios which are very easy to maintain. A drought tolerant garden with plants also often require little attention once they’re adequately rooted.

This makes water conservation spaces perfect for people who travel a lot as in most cases you don’t need to worry about feeding or watering tons of plants and flowers. They’re also great for families with young children and pets. Everybody can enjoy the garden without it becoming unkempt and overgrown, and you can easily clean up messes from paving stones and pebbled areas.


In a state as warm as Sacramento, it’s only natural to be conscious of your environmental footprint. The good news is that drought-resistant landscaping is known to have less of a negative environmental impact than traditional gardening methods.

With high-maintenance gardens, homeowners often use harsh chemicals like pesticides and fertilizers to keep their outdoor spaces looking lush and green. As the garden gets irrigated, these chemicals end up filtering into the water and eventually end up in the ocean.

However, with xeriscaping, you will use less water, and as a result, less harmful runoff ends up filtering into the ocean. You will also save fuel (and your own time) if you opt for artificial turf or low maintenance grass, as you won’t need to mow the lawn – it’s a win-win!
