Do-It-Yourself types can get the information they need to plan, install and care for a xeriscape...and reduce their water bill!

  • Before you begin, gather ideas, make a wish list, draw a plan and learn about your options. Observe and document the conditions of each location throughout the seasons before planting.
  • Reduce or eliminate large or unused lawn areas; plan small areas of grass for recreational use or other functions.
  • Select low water-use plants that are adapted to arid environments, and group plants according to their water needs.
  • Plan, design and install an efficient irrigation system-- and adjust your watering schedule at last four times a year.
