Xeriscape Landscaping with Stone

Except for the Northwest, most of the Western US is considered pretty arid. In fact, the two driest states in the Union, Nevada and Utah, sit side by side. For those of us who live in this region, we understand how important it is use water wisely. Whether you’re responsible for a commercial landscape or just a small yard, installing xeriscape landscaping can go a long way to making you a water saving hero.

What is Xeriscape?

So what is xeriscape landscaping? In the simplest terms, it’s to design using various strategies to reduce and minimize water use. Xeriscape designs typically require less maintenance than traditional landscapes. Drought-tolerant plants are often hardy and require less watering, mowing, and trimming. This can save both time and effort for homeowners and property managers. That doesn’t mean ugly and barren. It means being smart and deliberate.

Since xeriscape landscapes require less water, they can lead to substantial cost savings on water bills, especially in areas where water is scarce or expensive.

By reducing water consumption, xeriscape landscaping helps preserve natural water sources such as rivers, lakes, and underground aquifers. It also minimizes the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides, promoting a healthier ecosystem and reducing the risk of water pollution.
