Some plants thrive in high heat and with low water intake. Keyhole gardens require less water than the traditional garden bed.
This California garden is deer-resistant and drought tolerant. Plants were used to cover this sloping front yard. Succulents (including vivid coral ‘Sticks on Fire’ euphorbia) mingle with California natives and easy-care, Mediterranean shrubs—lavender, rosemary, sage. The garden takes just 4 hours per month to maintain!
