The hot summer months can be potentially harmful for some flowering landscape plants. And if the heat doesn’t get to the plants, the water bill will get to the facility managers.
Building in drought-resistant plants into your property’s landscape is not only smart and resourceful, it will save you time and money as a property manager.
Selecting a hardy flowering plant will keep your landscape beautiful, without having to incur a high water bill. These plants will last longer on your landscape, and just overall be easier to manage.
Drought-resistant plants will also save you time and money. Hardier plants will resist wilting and browning, and keep you from having to re-hire landscapers to re-plant on your property.
