Xeriscape gardening is really catching on with those who are concerned about water usage.  Xeriscape gardening is a style of gardening where environmentally friendly; water conservative plants are used in your landscape design and require very little maintenance.  This design can be started under any conditions because the plants recommended for use are often native to your region.

These drought tolerant gardens do require some planning but it doesn’t take much effort after the plants are established.  If you live in a climate with long, hot and dry summers this is a method of gardening made for you.  If you are keen on being eco friendly in any climate consider a Xeriscape garden design.
