Creating a drought-tolerant garden requires careful planning and smart choices. Here are some tips to help you adapt to changing climates:
Consider the specific needs of different areas in your garden. Opt for plants that are already drought-tolerant, like lavender, Agastache, and Salvia.
Select smaller plants and allow them time to adapt to your garden’s conditions.
Evaluate how you use your outdoor space and consider rearranging it to benefit both you and your plants.
