Tips for Waterwise Gardening
There is no denying it, residents of Southern California are going to change the way they look at the water bill, and subsequently, it is going to change the very landscape of neighborhoods in the years to come. We favored tropical plants and many times annuals, participating in, on a grand scale, the planting and growing of water loving nursery stock every year.
The lawn we need to maintain twelve months of the year may not be the ideal in the future. After all, our rainfall averages do not support the old way of thinking and landscaping.
I am hoping to help you with the succulent gardening that might be happening in your yard with simple tips and colorful web pages. Trial and error has been experienced in a suburban yard and possibly the stories I offer here will smooth the transition for you.
All the plants reviewed have been grown in SoCal. Everyone giving succulents a try very likely will have success with the same plants in Los Angeles County. My neighborhood and city abuts the San Gabriels Mountains and it is always hotter in summer, and this area has dense clay soil, allowing for strict testing grounds and clime.
Questions are welcomed so do not be shy about asking.
Sincerely, Sherry Venegas
