Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping with slow-growing, drought-tolerant plants to conserve water and reduce yard trimmings. This landscape can be designed to reduce the number of resources needed to maintain it and the amount of waste it produces.
The main reason why homeowners want xeriscaping is to reduce water usage and maintenance while still having a beautiful and environmentally friendly outdoor space. It is particularly popular in arid or drought-prone regions where water is scarce, but it can be applied anywhere as a low-maintenance and sustainable option.
Multiple cities valley-wide offer incentives in the hope that homeowners trade their water-thirsty yards for something much more drought conscious. Check out the link to learn more.
