One effective solution is incorporating drought-tolerant trees into your yard. These hardy species not only survive with minimal watering but also add beauty and value to your property.


Here are some excellent drought-tolerant tree options for our area:

1. Bur Oak: A majestic, long-lived tree that provides ample shade and wildlife habitat.

2. Honeylocust: Known for its delicate leaves and dappled shade, perfect for allowing grass to grow underneath.

3. Hackberry: A tough, adaptable tree with interesting bark texture and berries that attract birds.
