Including a directory of 100 plants appropriate for a variety of drought-prone regions of the country, this accessible and contemporary xeriscaping guide is full of must-know information on popular gardening topics like native and drought-tolerant plants (including succulents), rainwater harvesting, greywater systems, permeable paving, and more.

A must-read for gardeners in a dry region. You will find many ideas for reducing water usage in your garden - tips on water conservation, plant selection and hardscaping. Don't miss the chapter "squeezing water from stone" where you'll find lots of cool ideas to create the illusion of water in the garden using stones, sculptures and dry streams.
