Water-Wise Landscapes

Xeriscape Example
Xeriscape is a common term used as it relates to the landscape architecture profession, especially in the State of Colorado.  According to dictionary.com, xeriscape “employs drought-resistant plants in an effort to conserve resources, especially water”.   In Colorado, this is vital for not only water conservation, but also as a money-saving strategy.  Most consumers are not going to plant low water-use plants just because it saves our precious resource, water.  Most consumers plant low-water use plants because it is the cost-effective thing to do.
