Xeriscaping is landscaping that reduces the need for supplemental water from irrigation.


Xeriscaping is landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation. It is promoted in regions that do not have easily accessible, plentiful, or reliable supplies of fresh water. In South Africa where water has become so precious, Xeriscaping has become an alternative to various types of traditional landscaping.

The specific plants used in xeriscaping depend upon the climate. Xeriscaping is different from natural landscaping, because the emphasis in xeriscaping is on selection of plants for water conservation, not necessarily selecting native plants.

Many people have converted to xeriscaping – it is effective and looks truly amazing. There is so much you can do with it.
