Even though our water supply is in great shape thanks to a very wet winter, we do live in the high desert and our summers are dry. When choosing plants for your yard, remember that outdoor irrigation in Reno-Sparks increases 400% during the summer months and choosing plants that do well here naturally are going to do best.
