Best Choice for Replacing Grass with Drought-Tolerant Plant - Dymondia

A Story by Michele Kreinheder | Updated 04/19/2014 7:19pm


http://youtu.be/f_UGF0tG5Ow This Long Beach home owner had a terrific idea; instead of a entire lawn of water-thirsty marathon grass they planted dymondia. This super easy to grow plant is always green, doesn't need to be mowed, and needs minimal watering. It is silver-green in color, it is comfortable to bare feet, creeps around stepping stones beautifully and works well in either small groups or, as this home owner proved, on a large tract. I would recommend avoiding being penny-wise and pound-foolish and plant plenty of plugs to cut down on time spent on maintenance weeding that is necessary until the dymondia fills in entirely. Remember the Long Beach Water Department will pay you up to $3.00 sq ft of FRONT lawn that is changed to drought tolerant plantings. A typical front yard is 1,000 sq ft which calculates out to a $3,000 rebate. Now isn't that dymondia looking even better!
