Waterwise Plants and Gardening outlines the six vital principles you need to apply to create a garden that is beautiful as well as waterwise. These are: Reducing areas of lawn; Grouping plants according to their water needs; Using dry tolerant plants; Maintaining your garden; Using mulch; and Watering efficiently.
The book describes 400 dry tolerant plants grouped as Trees; Shrubs; Bulbs, annuals and perennials; and Climbers and groundcovers. Every plant is illustrated with a beautiful colour photograph and includes a description and notes on cultivation, including the plant's ultimate height and spread.
The plants are also rated and grouped according to the level of dry tolerance whether high, medium or low so that it is easy to apply the principle of grouping plants together that have the same water requirement.
