From the Latin xero or none, xeriscaping refers to a landscaping type that requires little or no water to retain. As it is a popular option for landscaping in a desert where there is virtually non-existent rainfall, people in the southwestern United States see xeriscaping regularly. This arid region has brought about some beautiful, low-water landscape designs. Imaginative and evocative designs using different sizes and colors of rock have given the desert states a unique artistic flair. Moreover, against popular belief, greenery is also a part of xeriscaped yards, often working with trees and plants that are native to the area and therefore already adapted to the climate.
However, xeriscaping is not just rocks and cacti, no matter how attractive. Xeriscaping is still a great choice for water conservation across the country. Xeriscaping is basically doable anywhere, offering a number of financial and environmental benefits that can save water, money, and time. These savings have definite benefits for single-family rental homeowners. When performed properly, xeriscaping can provide some truly beautiful landscaping options your tenants will enjoy.
The first move toward creating a xeriscaped yard is to do some design and planning. Having a plan before beginning work could save you from plenty of headaches and stresses down the road. If planning and design aren’t your forte, professionals in your area can provide you with the expertise in xeriscaping installation and maintenance you need.
As you plan your Palm Bay landscape, keep in mind that xeriscaping typically restricts lawn spaces to small, functional accents. Xeriscaping doesn’t mean that you can’t have grass, just that the amount of grass is little in comparison to the general size of the yard. Your tenants might appreciate that since lawn mowing will be easy with such little space to look after. Another significant xeriscaping feature is the usage of water-efficient plants. The right plantings can become beautiful natural accents while also saving water. As these plantings have low water needs, drip systems are normally utilized in place of the typical sprinklers to automate and significantly minimize the amount of water used.
Water utility costs will definitely decrease with such little water usage. Upkeep is reduced also, meaning your tenants can enjoy a lovely yard with minimal effort. With numerous benefits for both the owner and the tenant, xeriscaping just makes sense for Palm Bay rental properties.
