Drought Tolerant Gardens SA



For obvious reasons drought tolerant plants have become popular in gardens in recent times. Drought-tolerant doesn’t mean no water and little maintenance – it’s not that simple. But if you follow some basic rules, especially at planting time, you’ll find these plants will get through a difficult period.


Drought tolerant plants include Australian natives and introduced plants. Some have distinctive characteristics, such as silver or grey foliage, or small and hairy leaves. They can readily adapt to an irregular watering pattern, but it’s important to give them a good bucket of water when first planted so they become established.


Your local Jim’s mowing franchise owner can put together a plan to make sure that your garden can withstand those long periods of no rain. As well as still giving you a desirable looking garden. So ask your Jim today to go over what he can do to improve your garden.

    If you are not satisfied with the job, we will inspect it and have any problems fixed.

Until this is done, you need not pay for the job. If problems are not fixed within a fortnight, any advance will be refunded.

    Only if no problems are found by the expert, will you be asked to pay the agreed price for the job and half the cost of the report.
