Many times when we decide to add new plants and such to our yards, we often select the plants that look pretty at the time. However, not always do we consider the implications the harsh desert climate will take on these plants, leading many of us more work to remove these plants after they are unsuccessfully acclimated. Are you picking the wrong plants for your home?
Looking Good Is Not Always The Right Choice
Like many things in life – just because it looks good, doesn’t mean its right for you. Be that high school prom dates, the overly priced car, or the plants in your home garden years down the road – sometimes it is more important to think about functionality and longevity than appearances. In terms of your plants, you have to think about what is going to last in your yard with many factors: sunlight, heat, rain, watering – you have to think about what will thrive, opposed to what you will have to replace in a few weeks.
What To Look For Instead
To combat this issue, you need to do your research in what will do well in your space. Are looking for a plant that will be getting a lot of direct sunlight and heat? Dainty florals might not last as well as a succulent might. If you are looking for something to keep bugs away inside of your home, check your local store for plants recommended in your home.
