What is Xeriscape?   Xeriscape - From the Latin term "xeric," meaning "dry," xeriscaping focuses on implementing low-water-use and native plants that will tolerate drought conditions or limited-water situations. Xeric landscapes minimize turf area by replacing it with low-water-use plant beds and hardscaping elements that require no water at all.

Why Xeriscape?  
Most areas around the country, at some point, will experience extended periods of drought.  Wisconsin  is not exempt from this reality. Plants located in traditional landscapes that are not watered on a regular basis will be severely affected. A properly designed xeriscape landscape uses plants that are as lush looking as any traditional landscape planting. All over the country, xeriscaping is becoming a more popular option for people who want to maintain their eye-catching landscapes while lowering their water use by as much as 60%. Protect your landscape investment by drought-proofing it.
