What is Xeriscaping?

Using creative landscapes with drought tolerant plants for water conservation is known as Xeriscaping. The water requirements of the plants used for this type of landscaping are minimal and often correspond to the local rainfall patterns. This significantly reduces the amount of water required for irrigation and maintenance. The style of Xeriscapes varies depending on the geographic region, the temperature, rainfall and soil conditions in the area. It was originally created for those areas which were drought prone. Today, it has a more modern appeal as many residential and commercial establishments are drawn to this alternative with water becoming a limited and expensive resource in recent times.
