Xeriscape is a style of landscape that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation.
The word was coined in 1981, combining the word “landscape” with the Greek word “xeros” (meaning “dry”).
A xeriscape is an attractive alternative to grass, using minimum water and requiring little maintenance. It’s all about using plants native to the region or those requiring little water and arranging them in an efficient manner, so as to save water and please the eye.
Professional xeriscape designs integrate natural elements, such as rocks, decomposed granite, natural stones, wood etc. in a way to create a unique and welcoming atmosphere.
