Hard to imagine that there are those who think that a drought tolerant garden would be drab. This drought resistant garden of cacti and succulents combined with a vegetable/herb garden creates an ever changing eye catching landscape.
On a monthly basis their fish pond water is drained into the succulent plants all around the property. The garden is watered, as needed, with the house supply. Essentially, their garden thrives on what others let go down the drain!
This garden and landscape has evolved over the past 12 years. Using water efficiently has resulted in not only cost savings but a bounty of beautiful vegetation. Over the years they have successfully grown the following in their Organic garden:
- Green Onions
- Yellow Squash
- Bell & Anaheim Peppers
- Sugar Snaps
- Parsley, Basil, Garlic, Cumin, Mint, Oregano, Thyme
The owner also has a hobby of using succulent clippings to design one of a kind planters which will be on display, A flyer giving an overview on the general care for growing succulents will also be available.
