If there’s one fast growing trend in plant arrangements in Los Angeles, it’s the world of succulent gardens. Today we’ll be blogging about the Best Succulent Garden In Containers Ideas we’ve seen lately while selling the L.A. real estate market. We’ll be checking out snap shots of the best succulent ideas for 2017. Are you ready?
Where once a succulent garden was rarely seen in Los Angeles, and that as a special cactus arrangement to the side of a ranch-style home, succulent arrangements are today found just about anywhere in Los Angeles on both the Eastside and Westside.
Why their rise in popularity? Well, for one thing, they’re immensely easy to grow and maintain, and there’s the little thing about the draught and running out of water. Ya know.
Moreover, they are almost impossible to kill too. Many people have already named them the “camel” of greenery. Being tolerant of low water levels, they can thrive in dry environments, and they don’t require hardly any water at all. In addition, they are simply beautiful and lend themselves to whatever shape, style or arrangement you may have in mind. So lets check some out now!
