XERISCAPING & ZEROSCAPING
LOW MAINTENANCE & ECO-FRIENDLY
Xeriscaping is a type of landscape design that uses low-water-use or drought-tolerant plants that require little to no supplemental irrigation. Zeroscaping a yard filled predominantly with gravel and dirt containing few or no plants.
Xeriscaping techniques are nothing new but are becoming more common in our area with the increasingly hot Summers throughout parts of Texas. This type of landscaping is about introducing and using indigenous plants and shrubbery that will keep the water use low on properties, and/or take advantage of the natural water sources that are provided.
In addition to lowering water usage, xeriscaping is also about having a landscape with minimal maintenance. So, instead of having large areas of turf around your home or business, you can utilize Texas Native plants that require little water and maintenance.
Xeriscaping is less costly to maintain than a standard landscape design of the same square footage that consists of grass, plants, and flowers.
It’s something we’ve seen clients take advantage of when they have issues with water puddling up in certain areas around their house, or when they just don't have time to water and maintain their yard or gardens.
The sustainable trend is especially popular in more progressive cities across Texas such as Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and the valley, but has recently started to pick up exponentially in the Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex
Just don’t get xeriscaping confused with zeroscaping, which is a landscape with no plants and just rocks.
