Low Water Plants

Low water gardens don't have to be drab, as a matter of fact, my gardens all utilize low-water plants that bloom throughout the year.

I build my garden's structure around Mediterranean  and Australian plants like salvias, lavenders, phormiums, a dose of ornamental grasses, succulents, and lot's of edible plants!

Who doesn't want to  save water and enjoy abundant blooms?



I'm in love with color because it adds a sense of liveliness to a garden.

Bright colors also attract "natures ornaments" such as hummingbirds, butterflies and birds.
