Open Garden Tour, Drought Resistant Garden – May 19, 2024

We were treated to two Open Garden Tours this weekend. This garden began a renovation in the spring of 2020 to a drought resistant alternative to lawn, with pollinator and bird attracting native plants. There were even some before photos that showed what a complete transformation occurred. Of special note was the beautiful woolly thyme carpet in the back yard. It was just beginning to flower and the bees were very happy. The homeowner also made use of the fallen oak leaves for a thick and nutritious layer of mulch. The garden truly demonstrated that it is possible to have a beautiful space using little water—which may be a lesson we all need to learn in future years.
