What is Xeriscape

Using native and drought tolerant plants are just a couple elements of what is known as Xeriscaping. Xeri does not mean zero, it comes from the Greek term xeros meaning dry. Xeriscape landscaping simply means landscaping in a way that minimizes water use. Some of the advantages to Xeriscaping are less maintenance, less water used (and therefore less cost), less water lost to evaporation, less runoff, a better habitat for animals and better use and retention of rainwater.
