Xeric or Waterwise Gardens

Xeric, or water-wise gardens, are a great way to conserve water and preserve the natural landscape. Water is a rare and precious resource, so dumping it onto the landscape isn't a reasonable option when you have other options -- like xeric landscaping.

There are numerous websites, books, landscape architects, and gardeners where you can gain information or design for your native-looking landscape. Xeric landscaping, not zero landscaping, isn't rocks and cacuts -- it can be beautiful green and flowering plants that attract birds and butterflies, as well as admiration from your guests.
