Xeriscaping and Drought Tolerant Landscape Design
California has been struggling with a drought. This drought has caused the state to request homeowners and commercial businesses decrease their water use and find new ways to take care of their property.
The Sacramento area has been hit especially hard, as the Central Valley has been seeing record lows in rainfall. This drought has led many homeowners to seek out landscape design that requires less water and less upkeep, to reduce water usage and save on their energy bill.
What is Drought Tolerant Landscaping?
Property owners are looking at drought tolerant landscaping – landscaping that requires little to no water while still improving the look at feel of the property. Known as Xeriscape, this type of landscaping is made with very little grass or artificial grass. Combining artificial grass and the use of custom designed paver stones, Capital Landscape Design can turn your backyard/ front-yard into a moving saving oasis.
Xeriscape landscaping architects create landscapes that:
- Require little to no water.
- Use long lasting materials.
- Withstand all elements – including rain.
While other landscapes may struggle with yearly changes in water and heat and require constant maintenance, xeriscape landscapes are made with more durable retails, very little turf, plants that withstand all elements, and designs that can make a landscape truly stand out.
