Low Water Use Gardens

Gravel, cacti and and grasses can be used by garden designers to produce low water use landscapes. The grass on the left is 'Purple Fountain Grass' a sterile hybrid. It grows rapidly in dense clumps of burgundy foliage up to 1.5 m and produces foxtail like blooms. The use of a custom designed fence adds greatly to this design.
