The world over, you will have gardeners whose landscaping designs and activities are affected by the climate they live in. For some they will need to take into account excessive amounts of rain, others might be living somewhere where temperatures are cold for most of the year, and then there will a group whose landscaping is impacted by a lack of rainfall.
You might think that this last group of landscapers have the biggest problem to deal with, given that anything which you would want to grow in a garden needs water in order to survive. You might be right, so to help anyone who does indeed live in an area where rainfall is limited, here are some ways you can address this issue, and even turn it into an advantage with regards to your landscape gardening.
Research Your Plants: There are many plants, flowers, shrubs, and trees which thrive in dry conditions, and so you should research which fall into this category, decide on which ones you like the look of, and then use these in your garden instead of those which require a lot of watering.
Plan Your Planting: As part of your research, and especially if you wish to still include plants that need a fair degree of moisture, you should categorize each group depending on what the experts say about the amount of moisture they require. Then, you should plant each group of plants who have a similar need for water together, thus preventing one or two plants from depriving other plants nearby of the moisture they need.
