“The Water-Saving Garden” A guide to growing beautiful gardens in drought-prone areas utilizing minimal water for maximum results. With climate change, water rationing, and drought on the rise, conserving water is more important than ever—but that doesn’t mean your gardening options are limited to cacti and rocks. The Water-Saving Garden provides gardeners and homeowners with a diverse array of techniques and plentiful inspiration for creating outdoor spaces that are so beautiful and inviting, it’s hard to believe they are water-thrifty. Including a directory of 100 plants appropriate for a variety of drought-prone regions of the country, this accessible and contemporary guide is full of must-know information on popular gardening topics like native and drought-tolerant plants, rainwater harvesting, greywater systems, permeable paving, and more.

Pam Penick is a garden designer, award-winning blogger, and the author of Lawn Gone! She is a contributor to such magazines as Garden Design, Organic Life, and Wildflower and has received several writing awards from Garden Writers Association. She gardens on a rocky slope in northwest Austin, where she’s challenged by dry shade, deer, and rainfall runoff. Catch-up with Pam on her blog, Digging, at penick.net/digging.
