Environmental consciousness and a desire to reduce water consumption in the desert has led to the rise in popularity of xeriscaping. Xeriscape designs allow you to beautifully landscape the grounds of your home or business without the use of irrigation for water-hungry ornamentals. Instead of using grass and flowers, xeriscape designs utilize rocks and native plants to create a beautiful and authentically Southwestern look that requires very little maintenance.
Benefits of Xeriscape Designs
For many people, deciding how to landscape a space can be daunting. On the one hand, you know that bare earth is a magnet for weeds and pests, not to mention ugly to look at. On the other hand, you may not feel comfortable with the upkeep required to maintain a traditional grass-and-flowers landscape, particularly here in Albuquerque where water is a precious commodity.
This is where xeriscaping really shines:
- It requires minimal upkeep – just weeding and mulching.
- Xeriscape designs utilize native plants, like cacti and succulents, to create an authentically Southwestern appearance.
- You can customize the look of your xeriscaped property through the choice of plants, rock colors and textures, designs of pathways or dividers and more.
- You’ll save money on maintenance and utility costs.
If you want a beautiful landscape that matches the spirit of the desert and requires minimal upkeep and long-term investment, xeriscaping is the perfect solution.
