Maximize the Beauty of Your Yard in San Diego While Minimizing the Expense

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 10 May , 2023

People who may not be familiar with the climate of San Diego may wrongly assume that this is a place where just about any plant can grow effortlessly and grow successfully throughout the year. However, those of us who live here understand that this is not the case and that the plant life in our yards needs to be planned and matched with the climate just like anywhere else. While more types of plants will tend to grow in this climate, many homeowners are looking for ways to maximize the look of their plant life while minimizing the expense.

Below you will find a brief overview of some suggestions that homeowners should keep in mind as they plan on putting together the plant life for their yards. These suggestions will take the climate and cost considerations into account as well as aesthetic concerns. Anyone who is unsure of what to do about the outdoor portions of their home should seek the help of San Diego landscaping professionals as soon as possible.

Low-Water Plants that Can Handle Moisture

Anyone who lives in San Diego understands that the climate is such that we get little or no rain for approximately six months out of the year and then occasionally heavy rain in late fall, through the winter, and into the spring. Unfortunately, too many people choose high-water tropical plants only to be forced to water them daily throughout the dry season and then hope that they survive the chilly and wet winter. Going with low-water plants that can handle some moisture, such as Coast Aloe could provide that type of benefit to homeowners.

Rugged Plants That Can Handle Temperature Variances

While it is generally believed that the temperature in San Diego always stays within a certain narrow range, the fact of the matter is that the temperatures can soar well into the 90’s or above along the coast of San Diego in the summer and dip into the 30’s during the winter. Therefore, a homeowner will need plant life that can handle this variance. Whale’s Tongue Agave is one of the many plants that can handle this type of temperature change throughout the year.

Plants That Look Aesthetically Pleasing

Of course, people can choose plants that are rugged and strong but that still look beautiful to those who happen to see them. Echeveria Lola and Blue Fescue are just two examples of strong plants that will be able to live through the year in San Diego and that blossom into beautiful sights on an annual basis. These plants provide the best of both worlds to homeowners.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
