Even in a generally moist climate like mine, there are warm, dry stretches in the summer – and not everyone can irrigate their entire garden. So it’s useful to pick plants that can withstand a bit of drought. I’ve focused this video on perennials for a temperate climate, and have included the common and botanical (genus) names, as well as a general idea of their winter hardiness. Chances are that I’ve missed some of your favorites. That’s okay! Drop those suggestions in the comments below the video for me and other gardeners. If you find these videos useful, there are a few little things you can do to help me out: Have a look at our Amazon shop: Follow our farm on Instagram: Like us on Facebook: Or better yet, subscribe to this Youtube channel: And for a place to indulge in random garden anarchy: Photo credits: Nepeta by David J.

    I live in Eastern Washington and our natural landscape is dry and is considered desert/shrub steppe with 7in average rainfall. This video was very helpful for me! Would you consider doing something similar for shade plant options?

    Excellent video. I find Lavendar to be also very drought tolerant. Russian Sage is super loved by honey bees.

    Great Info! Thanks. I always 'like' your videos before I even press play. They are consistently good.

    Here on the dry prairies of Colorado, I have found that Liatris 'kobold' does better with regular and consistent watering.

    Great informative video, I’m in northern California zone 9, starting from scratch tilled up the grown in May 2020. Do I need to do it again before seeding.

  • Joey Gaudreau 892 4 months ago

    What about Canada? We have grass too!

  • Miklo Morales 4 months ago

    Would your turf type tall fescue work well in Cincinnati ohio ?

  • HELP!! I’m in Central Florida and seeding a new lawn, by October, yard is mostly full sun yard. I want to seed with mini/micro clover and grass seed. I’m confused with the mix to use. Some say to use tall Fescue, now or Centipede later (not til April)? I originally wanted Bermuda.

    Going to try you TTTG down here Tucson, AZ. We are low humidity and triple digits+ in the summer, but I have great shade in the heat of the day. Just hate having cool season grass under the tree and bermuda for the rest. Keep you posted.

  • Codey Cooper 4 months ago

  • Paige58 4 months ago

    I live in upstate South Carolina. I just bought a cleared 4 acre lot that we are building house on. When and what is the best overall grass to plant that is low maintenance since it is 4 acres. There is a bunch of weeds and little grass on it now.

  • SuburbanNinja8000 4 months ago

    The Guild show in out of date… out of Respesd May I send the updated one sir? Also what's your views on Clover That you Throw into the lawn.

  • Not just the correct type of grass but How TALL you let it grow and cut it depending on the time of the year. There is a reason you can adjust your mower height and I feel it shouldn't stay one height all season. In the North East (NY/NJ) I keep it short in May and June and then the end of June into July I let it grow a little taller … Then July I go up a bit more and in August/ September I have it the tallest about 4". I find it helps hold moisture and the grass doesn't burn out so fast with less rain. I try to only water when I need to and I have an excellent lawn. If you want to know the best grass call your local Golf Course, I use to work on one in HS and yes people would call and speak w/ the Greenskeeper he would explain everything to them. You don't try you don't get!

    Cool season area here in central Ohio. Previous home owner left the backyard of house I just bought pretty darn thin and bare, heavy shade area with massive trees. Any recommendations? Would fall fescue suffice?

    Thank you for sharing….I live in central KY…my yard is only .3 acres…most of my backyard is my septic leach fields…I have 2 big pin oaks and 3 ginormous river birch trees….can you please give your advice on what king of grass might do good in my yard….my topsoil is some of the best that I have seen….I dug for a fish pond and I have 2'-3' of usable topsoil…At this point, with getting the grass to grow and come back every year, I'm ready to pour concrete for the entire yard….dang dogs also scratch after doing their business….would a fine blade grass do better? I was thinking that the finer blades might not come up as easy and slide in between the dogs nails better….again…thank you I hope you can understand the frustration….also….best I can tell I have a fescue 31 type grass….I say this cause I just sowed some and after it came up it is very similar…keep the tips coming…you have another sub

  • HailStonE 4 months ago
