PRE­VENT MOIS­TURE LOSS

go! Platteland - - NO-WATER GARDENS -

I wrote about this at great length in the Sum­mer 2017/18 edi­tion (Plat­te­land #17, “Cover Stars”). Ap­ply­ing thick mulch is the sec­ond-most im­por­tant thing you can do. It not only pre­vents soil from dry­ing out but also cre­ates a sta­ble slow-re­lease nu­tri­ent de­liv­ery sys­tem, which is crit­i­cal to grow­ing drought-tol­er­ant plants.
