Combinations for Conservation: Recommended Plant Groupings for Low-Water Landscapes
Utah State University Extension
There are many low-water plant books that list a variety of drought-tolerant plants suitable for water-conserving landscapes. However, many homeowners are often intimidated by the information and unsure of how to put them together. This books aims to give homeowners and designers the confidence to create beautiful, low-water landscapes by showing them examples of plant combinations that have been successful in low-water gardens throughout the Intermountain West. The plant combinations are grouped together by water requirements and there are tips throughout the book about conserving water and efficient irrigation.
