Defining Xeriscaping (Drought Tolerant Landscaping)
All About a Water Efficient Landscape Design
When you build a landscape from the bottom up, there are quite a few little things you can do to make it a water efficient landscape design. Planning the use of water in your yard gives you much greater control over all your water bills when it comes to keeping plants and outdoor features looking fresh and lively. Many landscapes are simply given to you when you purchase a home and therefore you don’t get any of this control, however upgrading to a Xerscape may be just the backyard design solution you need to make your mark on the efficiency of your landscape.
What does it mean to Xeriscape?
Well, it quite literally means to design a lawn with little to NO irrigation. That means you could potentially eliminate your need for water in your yard all together. It is a type of design that utilizes dry features and synthetic materials to create the appearance of a lively and beautiful lawn without using unnecessary water. It means that you can have a wide different selection of landscapes from a garden feature to a traditional looking lawn without having to install extra pricy irrigation. It is in effect a way to dryscape your lawn by simply reducing lawn waste and high maintenance plants. With such a limited supply of water available, a Xeriscaping design is a great way to keep your home looking beautiful without splurging on water bills.
