Plants that don't require much water benefit gardeners in numerous ways. This is especially true for gardeners who live in areas with watering restrictions and those who travel frequently. Regardless of your reason, choosing perennial groundcovers that don't need a lot of care (or water) are a great way to have a low-maintenance garden. Consider adding these tough and non-thirsty beauties to your landscape.
Add a Water Feature Install a stream or other water feature to give your garden extra sensory appeal with the sound of trickling water. A simple fountain and recirculating pump are all it takes to make garden magic.
Shady slope: Hostas are a topnotch groundcover for shady areas. Plant them on a tough-to-mow hillside to create a lovely, carefree garden bed. If you have a steep slope that water runs down so quickly the soil can't absorb moisture, try breaking up the hill with rocks or other barriers. It will slow the flow of water.
Two great plants for slopes. Coppertina Ninebark has coppery leaves. Lambs Ear is a beautiful contrast, so use them together. The Lambs Ear will also become a semi ground cover.
