Water-Smart Gardening gives you all the tools needed to create a water-smart landscape and garden.
Choose water-smart plants that survive and even thrive in low-water situations. Tap into the power of evolution and use plants native to your area. Time your irrigation and install water-collection devices such as cisterns and rain barrels.
Creating a water-efficient garden can even be as simple as designing your landscape to harvest as much rainfall as possible, using berms, terraces, and raised beds.
This book will inspire you with beautiful garden ideas and help you see your way to a garden that sips water instead of gulping it, with helpful how-to information that gets to the nuts and bolts of everything from installing a cistern to using seep irrigation.
