Dry Climate Gardening

By: Tricia Craven Worley

Gardening in a dry climate can be a challenge but Southern Californian Tricia Craven Worley explains that it is possible to create a beautiful landscape if you choose your plants carefully. The staples of such gardens are drought tolerant plants such as Pride of Madeira, Rosemary and Thyme. Creating areas that mimic natural features like an arroyo succa (or dry stream bed) showcases the plants and makes an appealing focal point for your landscape.
