Colorado’s dry climate makes growing maintaining certain plants, trees, flowers and grass tricky. Xeriscaping is a landscaping solution many Colorado Spring’s homeowners have found to create a beautiful landscaped outdoor space while also saving time and money.
With grass requiring significant water and care, xeriscape can reduce or eliminate high water bills while also maintaining aesthetics and improving home value, as well as quality of life and cutting the need for precious resources.
Xeriscaping is simply a form of landscaping that reduces the need for frequent watering. Many xeriscape plans replace other forms of landscape designs that require regular maintenance and lots of water and is therefore sometimes referred to as water-conserving landscaping or drought-tolerant landscape.
It is perfect for Colorado’s dry summers and cold winters.
It is true that Xeriscape landscaping used to be known for rocks, cactus and bushes, but it has grown into its own earth-friendly art form.
Xeriscape Uses Up To 2/3 Less Water
Using up to 2/3 less water than traditional landscaping with natural lawn, and requiring less chemicals and fertilizers, xeriscape is a great option for the environmentally cautious.
Only requiring weeding and occasional mulching, xeriscape is also easier to care for.
Aesthetically, xeriscape can include stones, walkways, bushes, trees, rock, mulch, and plants and can be used in place of grass lawn. Or in addition to a lawn, to create water savings, cost savings and still give a unique look and feel.
Dried or burned grass patches due to pets, children or the environment can be replaced with artificial turf, a usable patio or play area, dog run, outdoor kitchen or even a fire pit.
