It’s that time of year again. The time when the sun shines, the rain refuses to fall, and your yard looks like a desert wasteland. You and drought season are old frenemies, and you know each other well. But did you know there are plenty of ways to drought-proof your landscaping? Enjoy a beautiful outdoor space anytime of year with these brilliant ideas for your yard.
Fire Pit Patio
Create a seating area using pea gravel or concrete as your foundation with a fire pit as your focal point. Nothing says summer quite like sitting around a fire in the evenings with good food, friends, and music. Plus, you’ll enjoy the added bonus of getting to use your fire pit patio all throughout the year — making it a wonderful way to drought-proof your landscaping.
Swimming Pool Deck
Whether you have an above-ground or in-ground pool, adding a pool deck over your yard ensures brown grass and dehydrated plants are well out of sight. This works great to camouflage unhealthy patches in both summer and winter, and requires little to no maintenance.
Remember the pet rock? Well now you can have a rock garden! Create a unique display in your yard with rocks and boulders, even adding some desert, drought-resistant plants for color. Use your imagination and create a work of art to enjoy in all types of weather conditions.
