Water Saving Facts

We here at The Cactus King are aware of the water shortage in the world. Facts are that landscaping with cactus and succulents will save water. This is yet another great reason to landscape your yard through The Cactus King. To put this in perspective, here at The Cactus King we will use around 250 thousand gallons of water in a year. The same size nursery with other landscape plants will use anywhere from 5 million to 12 million gallons of water a MONTH. We hope to see you soon!
