Xeric gardening also known as xeriscaping.
refer to landscaping and gardening in ways that reduce
or eliminate 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,
and is gaining acceptance in other areas
as climate patterns shift.

Advantages

  • Lowers consumption of imported or ground water.

  • More water available for other domestic and community uses
and the environment.

  • Less time and work needed for maintenance effort
(no lawns to cut).

  • Xeriscape plants in appropriate planting design, soil grading and
mulching, take full advantage of rainfall retention.

  • When water restrictions are implemented, by municipality or
water costs, Xeriscape plants will tend to survive and thrive, while
more ornamental plants may be unable to adapt.

  • Can be visually more interesting than lawns.


Xeric Gardening becomes a positive alternative step forward
from traditional gardening and landscaping in arid regions.
