Kuwait is from nature's side all desert, made up of red soil, and there is little that favours agriculture.
Vegetation is limited to low bushes and scrub, and salt-loving plants in the marshes along the coast. There are a few tiny oases, and some sparse vegetation along the coast.
With the help of irrigation controlled by modern technology, Kuwait has come to be more green than before.
The landscape of Kuwait is flat, and there are 9 islands, but only Faylaka is inhabited.
