Xeriscaping - Blog - posted 4-22-2023

Xeriscape means using native plants that thrive in low-water, desert conditions.  Plants such as salvia, fairy duster, turpine bush, Mexican firecracker, penstemon, ocotillo, yucca and prickly pear, mixed with a variety of succulents, including agaves and cacti and you have a drought tolerant oasis.  If you use some high-water use plants that add interest and color, that don’t make up the majority of the plant life, the landscape remains water efficient.  Take a look at the “Arizona Department of Water Resources” for plant lists, landscape resources, irrigation, water harvesting, training and certifications.
