Combine Xeriscaping and a Sprinkler System to Save Water

When you think of xeriscaping, does your mind immediately jump to arid landscapes filled with rocks and succulents? While this is a popular style of xeriscaping, there are also many other options and designs to consider, including adding a patio, sprinkler system, or low water plants throughout your landscape.

Another option to consider if you are planning on updating your landscaping is to look at having a sprinkler system installed. Contrary to popular belief, a properly installed sprinkler system can bring you many water saving benefits, including time specific watering, or a drip system which is ideal for any xeriscaping design in the Durango area. With the proper placement, a drip system can water just your plants, and at the ideal times of day to deliver the exact amounts of water to your landscape.

Many homeowners will opt to combine a patio into their xeriscaping design, bringing in an added level of functionality and beauty in the contrasting element. Riverview Landscaping, LLC can help you design a patio that will be both functional for you and your landscaping. For example, many plants incorporated into a xeriscaping design, can easily be watered with runoff from an adjacent sprinkler system or natural rainfall, with the help of a gentle slope in your new patio directed toward any nearby plants.

This year, it may be time to break away from traditional landscaping methods, and consider xeriscaping for a truly unique design that will be perfect for your outdoor living area needs.
