Water-Wise Gardens

Water-wise gardening starts with the selection of plants that require little to no irrigation once established. A well planned and maintained water-wise garden will need only a fraction of the water required to maintain a green lawn.

Xeriscaping is a popular style of water-wise gardening which utilizes highly drought tolerant plants often with a dry mediterranean feel and may utilize rock based mulches.

We utilize the principles of water-wise gardening in all of our designs. The parking strip is often the most challenging area to water and we therefore put more emphasis on drought tolerance or xeriscaping as we get further away from the faucet.
