Plan Description

Although dry, sunny sites can be challenging, it's possible to enjoy a lush, colorful garden even in areas of your yard with fast-draining, sandy soil and full-sun exposure. Place this three-pronged bed anywhere in your landscape that gets the full force of the sun. The garden will be sure to thrive, since the designer takes special care to select water-thrifty plants. Once these water-wise perennials become established, you'll expend very little effort keeping them watered. Keep in mind, however, that even drought-tolerant perennials need to be well watered during the first year after planting. And during periods of extreme heat or prolonged drought, you'll probably need to water a bit more than usual. This colorful garden is divided into three planting areas by two shredded-mulch paths. A wooden arbor over one path adds structure, provides a visual anchor and creates interesting shadows as the sun passes overhead. Moss rocks create a second, stronger visual anchor and furnish a backdrop for the surrounding plants. The ornamental grasses and yuccas add height and a sense of balance to the composition. Not all flowers need even moisture and rich soil to perform well. This design features a beautiful array of perennials that bloom prolifically in poor soil and drought conditions.
