Xeriscaping means simply landscaping with slow-growing, drought tolerant plants to conserve water and reduce yard trimmings. A landscape can be designed from the beginning to reduce the amount of resources needed to maintain it and the amount of waste it produces. Every spot around the globe has different resource conditions, such as available water, soil type, temperature ranges, and lighting. By designing a landscape in an appropriate manner, selecting compatible native plants, and installing efficient irrigation systems, a balance can be achieved that fits both the aesthetic needs of the landowner or client, and the resource availability of the region.
