Xeriscaping is the practice of designing landscape to reduce or eliminate the need for irrigation. We use a combination of Colorado native drought tolerant plants, trees and shrubs, landscaping rocks, mulches, and decorative boulders to create a visually beautiful but low maintenance landscape.
Why consider xeriscaping?:
Conserve water and save on your water bills
Rebates and incentives may be available through your city/town
Reduce fertilizer use with native plants
Low maintenance (low water requirements and low weeding/pruning needs)
In the Longmont, Colorado area we like to incorporate native plants in xeriscape landscapes, this helps ensure the best results! Native plants are adapted to the local climate and soil conditions - ending up with less maintenance overall. A few plants we suggest include; Feather Reed Grass, Spirea Bushes, Blue Avena Grass, butterfly bushes, butterfly bushes, Lilac shrubs, rose bushes, Maple trees (Japanese Maple, Autumn Blaze Maple), Boxwood Trees, Burning Bushes, and more!
