These are water-saving plants?
First, when planning a garden, it is important that we know how to choose the right vegetation and the right area for growing the plants chosen for planting. As is known, not every plant requires the same amount of water. Choose plants that are considered water efficient.

Preferred herbs on ferns, pomegranate trees on citrus trees, and cacti on palms. There are quite a few water-saving plants that will give your garden a blooming and blooming look.
In addition, if you can, place your garden in an area where there is full or partial shade during the hot afternoon. Morning and afternoon hours can provide a lot of light for the vegetation without causing much water evaporation from the ground.
How will we use ground cover in the garden?
There are many types of ground coverings, with the goal of all the surfacing the same – reducing evaporation of water from the ground and maintaining soil moisture. The familiar surfaces in the market are tuff, pebbles, stepping stones and wood chips. The wood chips have a significant advantage because their combination gives the garden a natural look.
With the proper distribution of wood chips as ground cover, they form a protective layer on the ground. When irrigating, some of the water is absorbed in the wood chips, while the inner part of the soil remains moist. When the soil remains moist for a long time, you can reduce the amount of water to irrigate the garden. Another advantage of using wood chips to cover, which are soft and can tread on them without fear.

The most important rule about irrigation is the time of irrigation – always preferred to water in the early morning so that the water would be absorbed into the soil and not immediately evaporated from the heat of the sun. Keep proper irrigation intervals, over-watering can not only waste water, but also destroy vegetation that is sufficient for a small amount of water
