How To Plant Water-Wise Landscapes


Welcome to 'How to Plant Water-Wise Landscapes'! Learn how to create a beautiful and sustainable landscape that conserves water and saves money.


Slide 1: Start with a plan. Assess your space, consider your climate, and choose plants that are native or drought-resistant.


Slide 2: Prepare the soil. Add organic matter to improve water retention and drainage. This will help your plants thrive in any weather.


Slide 3: Group plants according to their water needs. This will make watering more efficient and prevent over or under watering.


Slide 4: Use mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Organic mulch, such as wood chips or bark, is a great option for water-wise landscapes.


Slide 5: Install a drip irrigation system. This delivers water directly to the roots, reducing evaporation and water waste.


Slide 6: Water deeply and infrequently. This encourages plants to develop deep roots, making them more resilient to drought.


Slide 7: Consider using rain barrels or a greywater system to collect and reuse water for your landscape.


Slide 8: Maintain your landscape regularly. Remove weeds, adjust irrigation as needed, and replace any plants that are not thriving.


Slide 9: Enjoy your beautiful and water-wise landscape! Not only will it save you time and money, but it will also benefit the environment.
