One of the reasons to buy a home in Sacramento is so you can plant a garden in that newly acquired yard. It's not the same as renting a house, as I can recall a rental in 1981 in Newport Beach where I had a garden. My lease was up right before the artichokes were ready to pick, and I had to move. If you've ever grown artichokes, the width of these plants alone is stupdendous. Too big to dig up.
If you own a home, whatever you plant in your yard stays with you. If you decide you no longer appreciate, say, trumpet vines, good luck removing them. They will still sprout up in your yard from time to time. I imagine a vast underground root system flourishing, all due to our 3 initial plants. Which will probably need to be a material fact at any future resale efforts.
Planting appropriate plants and vegetables that love our dry climate is key. You can read more in my personal blog today and see all the photographs at this link: Are You Wondering What Grows in Sacramento Gardens in May?
