In summer months, outdoor water use accounts for nearly 50% of water used around the average home. Discover how to save money by reducing water usage through current xeriscape practices and technologies. By learning the seven basic fundamentals of xeriscaping you will be able to create a beautiful yet water-conserving landscape. Choose the appropriate lawn turf, plants, mulches and irrigation systems for your climate, soil and existing site conditions. Learn about the diversity of plant foliage, flower colors, climate and seasonal water conservation techniques that can both save you money and improve your garden. Water conservation through creative landscaping gives a whole new meaning to "going green."
