Using a combination of beautiful rocks, xeriscape grass, xeriscape ground cover, xeriscape plants, xeriscape bushes and shrubs, xeriscape flowers, and xeriscape trees, a landscaping plan starts with xeriscape ideas that can help you save water, time, and money, while still providing all the beauty to be had with a full water blooming garden. There are even options for xeriscape lawns using grasses that take little or no water, such as zoysiagrass, which is perfect in desert climates and grows as beautifully as in a golf course or park.
Some states such as New Mexico also offer rebates on water bills for removing certain amounts of lawn and installing xeriscaping, so that can mean money back in your pocket every year. And ecologically, xeriscaping just makes good sense when trying to conserve water. Not only is a xeriscape landscaping design quite attractive, but it is also environmentally friendly, helpful to the planet, and cost-effective.
