Description

Do you want to discover the secrets of drought-proofing your lawn? Do you want to become an expert on "super" plants native to your desert climate? Do you want to save time, money and water on your landscape without sacrificing on curb appeal?

You're certainly not alone. According to a 2021 study from the IPCC, conditions of extreme drought are 1.7x more likely than they were 100 years ago. That is, at any given time we are nearly twice as likely to be experiencing an extreme drought than our desert-dwelling ancestors had a century ago. And this problem is not trending in the right direction. NASA warned in a recent study: megadroughts (or droughts which last 10 years or more) will increase in likelihood from 12% (in 2015) to more than 60% by the year 2050.

Though drought conditions can impact so many areas of our lives, the beauty and diversity of our lawns does not have to be one of them.

As desert landscaper Steve Martino says: "It's taken native plants a million years to get it right. Why fight it?"

*************************

In this book, you will discover:

• The drought-tolerant, low-water super plants specific to your desert region

• The most effective methods of turf removal to make room for more water-conscious ground covers (including the method I ALWAYS use myself)

• The secrets to companion planting in the desert

• How to cultivate a self-sufficient homestead even in the harshest desert conditions

• The hardscapes, accents and decorations that will take your outdoor space to the next level

• A can't-miss month-to-month planting guide for each desert region

• The simple landscaper tricks to making your new landscape thrive for years and years to come

• How subtraction leads to addition when it comes to xeriscaping

Just imagine for a moment how happy you will be when you arrive at your home after a long day of errands to find a vibrant, colorful, native plant oasis even in times of extreme drought. It certainly beats a crusty, brown and dehydrated lawn that just simply can't get the water it needs. And, of course, looks aren't everything. You're going to be thanking yourself when you get your water bill every month. A study in California showed that residents who xeriscaped their yard saved an average of 120 gallons per day! And in Phoenix, the city found that a xeriscaped, native desert yard conversion saved homeowner's as much as 76% per month in water usage. In times of extreme drought we all know how expensive water can get, so this book is going to put some serious money back in your pocket!
Best of all, this guide is so easy to follow that you can become a desert plant expert and gardening genius even if you've never been able to keep a plant alive for longer than 2 weeks. "The Dehydrated Gardener" is going to fix that!
