Tropical watering and irrigation

After #2 final photo!: Steer clear of thirsty plants... Bold succulents—agaves, aloes & aeonium—give Brooke’s garden the tropical foliage she wanted without the heavy water requirements. There’s also a lot less lawn to be irrigated now—she left just enough grass to spread out a blanket.

Although the Saigon townscape is getting uniformed and boring under the influence of the furious urban sprawl of recent years, we intended this house to inspire people to re-define and re-increase the greenery as the character of this city. “Stacking Green” is just one small house, but it is generated from the context of Saigon. We hope that “Stacking Green” makes Saigon become more distinguished and fascinating with much more tropical greenery in the future.

This project is a good example of a California Friendly garden that we would categorize as Arid Tropical. The larger plantings are established palms and subtropicals, while the middle and lower layers are a tapestry of Agaves, Aeoniums, Echeveria and Senecio. Irrigation is customized to keep the moderately thirsty subtropicals happy while denying water to the others.  http://rogersgardenslandscape.com/

Xeriscaping – landscape (an area) in a style which requires little or no irrigation. Xeriscaping is a water conservation concept that originated in Colorado and now spreading across the United States. The term Xeriscape is a combination of two Greek words – xeros meaning dry, and scape meaning view. It is not the same as “zero-scaping”, [...]

While it feels like you might be checking into a fancy resort, the truth is that this front yard requires a lot less maintenance and irrigation than a plain old patch of lawn. Bold succulents—agaves, aloes, and aeonium—give this front garden a tropical look without heavy water requirements. Hot-colored flowers—coral aloe, chartreuse euphorbia, lipstick pink grevillea, and kangaroo paws—add punch to the outer garden, while a judicious splash of blue Senecio mandraliscae tones down the heat.

Collecting rain from your roof in rain barrels is a great way to use a free resource to irrigate the garden. However, rain barrels can fill up within minutes during a rain event. Directing rain barrel overflow into a rain garden is one way to keep more water on your property for irrigation or to create more biodiversity.
