Water Smarts: Foliage plants shine in this drought-tolerant garden. Many drought-tolerant plants offer less-showy blooms, but make up for it with interesting foliage, such as Japanese bloodgrass. Plants in curb strips catch water before it hits the street. Replace grass with drought-tolerant plantings, which also help prevent erosion. Shade can fight against water loss: Plants lose a lot of moisture from evaporation on hot days. Grasses and artemisia offer beautiful foliage in this bed.

Evergreen

Description: Strong shapes were key to the design, so Kirsty created circular lawns and a round island bed, where the stunning Cercis Canadensis takes centre stage

While the planting looks great spring to fall, it was also designed for winter interest. The boxwoods, as well as a dwarf Alberta spruce, provide evergreen color and the ornamental grasses look great in the down season, too.
