Droughts are very common in the summer months
Hope Designs Toronto Decorating project CIMG1517 Droughts are very common in the summer months. This can be very detrimental for homeowners who are attempting to keep their homes exterior in tip-top condition while listed for sale. In most cases, when you’re trying to sell your home you have so much on your mind, watering your gardens and plants is the last thing on your mind! Drought conditions can make even the most seasoned gardeners anxious about the impact of NO RAIN on their plants.
Watering is one solution, but as a CSP, our concern lies with conservation! Rain and Water Barrels are a great alternative to collect water for future watering when it rains. However if the drought in your area is more severe, and you’re trying to be environmentally friendly and not water daily or weekly, tougher drought resistant plants may be necessary.
I have compiled a list of several drought resistant plants that are tried and true performers in Northern climates.
Note: these plants will still require occasional watering,
