Xeriscape Design Ideas
Planning is a very important step to a successful Xeriscape because it allows you to install your landscape in phases, which can reduce initial expenses. Whether you create your own Xeriscape design, or seek the help of a Xeriscape Landscaper, a properly designed landscape can help meet your lifestyle needs in Phoenix, Arizona.
Appropriate Turf Areas For Xeriscape Gardens
In the desert southwest it is best to only use turf where it will provide a functional benefit. For easier maintenance, plant grass areas away from walkways, fences and walls. Avoid planting turf in oddly shaped areas that cannot be watered efficiently.
Efficient Irrigation in Xeriscape
Well planned irrigation systems save water. For efficient water use, plan to irrigate turf areas separately from other plantings. Group landscape plants according to similar water needs. Trees, shrubs, garden flowers, and ground covers can be watered with low volume drip emitters. This means lower water bills and less strain on the environment.
Xeriscape Soil Improvements
Soil improvements allow for better absorption of water and improve the soil’s water holding capacity. Soils that contain organic matter also provide beneficial nutrients to plants. You may need to improve the soil before you plant, or before you install your irrigation system. For more information about your specific soil type, contact the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Maricopa County Office, or ask your local landscape professional.
Xeriscape Mulches & Plants
Mulched planting beds are an ideal replacement for turf areas. Mulches cover and cool the soil, decrease evaporation, reduce weed growth and slow erosion. Mulches also provide landscape interest. Organic mulches, typically bark chips and wood grindings, are generally used in planting beds. Inorganic mulches include rock, gravel and decomposed granite.
Lower Water Use Plants
Low water use plants can serve nearly every landscape function. Some provide shade and texture, while others are perfect for borders and accent areas. Many provide seasonal color as well as year-round greenery. Also consider planting desert wildflower seeds for beautiful color. Wildflowers can be planted in beds or among other low water use plants. Look for low water use plants and wildflower seed mixes at your local nursery.

I am impressed with the attention to detail and how Andy was there every step of the way to make sure everything was done right and in a timely manner. I highly recommend getting the “surface select” boulders as well as his lighting design. Truly artistic. Also, his choice of plants are both beautiful and low water usage. Andy went above and beyond to make sure the outcome was perfect.” Susan C.
