Smart planning for your flowerbeds around the house can lead to significant water and time savings when caring for your gorgeous blooms. According to National Geographic, consider "companion planting" by grouping certain plants together to help them mutually grow. When taller, sun-loving plants are planted in the back with shorter, shade-loving plants in front, they help each other thrive. The taller plants block the sun's rays and also help reduce evaporation of water from the shorter plants. This symbiotic planting will help your flowerbeds thrive and grow almost all on their own.
