Can You Say Xeriscape?

Xeriscape (pronounced zeeriskape)is gardening with a minimum of water use. With water considered to be the the gold of the future, all of us would be wise to consider how we can reduce water use in the landscape.

70% of water used in urban areas is used for non-consumption purposes, including irrigating golf courses, filling swimming pools, residential, park and commercial landscaping.

On the homefront, removing all grass is gathering steam as a major movement.

Some people take out all the plants and put in rocks.




Others prefer a low water-usage selection of plants with mulch.


I have a preference. What's yours?
