https://youtu.be/knpuK6nKvkQ

Today, many homeowners are leaning toward the use of more natural and sustainable landscape designs. If this sounds like you and you’re interested in cultivating an eco-friendly garden and lawn in San Jose, then watch this video to learn about the xeriscape system and its principles.

Xeriscape is a system that utilizes 7 rules designed to create sustainable, regionally-appropriate, and water-conserving landscapes. The 7 principles of this system include:

  • Good design and planning
  • Good soil preparation
  • Appropriate use of turf grass
  • Appropriate planting and plant groupings
  • Efficient irrigation
  • Mulch usage for moisture retention
  • Well-maintained landscapes

Many people assume that xeriscaping involves only the use of cacti and gravel. In reality, you can use this system to choose a combination of drought-resistant plants and other species to create a lawn and garden design that you can enjoy year-round.
