When we garden, we also water. There’s no real way to grow plants without water — even the most drought-tolerant plants like agaves and cacti need water sometimes. And with many parts of the world experiencing regular drought conditions, it’s vitally important that we plan how to water our gardens while protecting this invaluable resource. Much of that depends upon the type of watering system you choose — choose poorly, and water will be wasted. So let’s go over the different types of watering systems out there — which one is right for your garden?

I love a good ornamental grass — they add texture and movement to the garden and provide form for most of the garden year. An added benefit is that for nearly any garden site or project you have in mind, there is an ornamental grass that’s perfect for it.

So, let’s say you are in the market for some tall grasses (perhaps you’re creating that meadow, or you need to block a view or provide some height at the back of your border) — what are your options? As it turns out, many — but here are our top 5 favorites.

Never heard of no-dig gardening? You’re not alone, although this way of gardening has been around for decades. Very similar to “sheet gardening” and “lasagne gardening” (the terms are sometimes used interchangeably), no-dig is a way of gardening that leaves the soil undisturbed by cultivating, plowing, tilling, or digging. Let’s talk about the “why” and then we’ll get into the “what” (read this post for the “how”).
