What is a Xeriscape?
|Spanish Courtyard style xeriscape in San Antonio Antique Rose Emporium.|
A landscape is a xeriscape if it needs little extra water or other assistance to look its best. Fortunately, many plants thrive in San Antonio with these low-care conditions. This leaves a wide range of landscape styles at your fingertips. San Antonio low-water landscapes are cool, inviting and lush. They burst with color during every season of the year!
The San Antonio Botanical Garden has a "WaterSaver Lane" display where you can observe the many different xeriscape style options possible. The model landscapes in place around tiny homes are: Wildscape, Manicured Xeriscape, Hill Country Landscape, Spanish Courtyard and Cottage Garden. One of these styles is bound to match your preferences and the architecture of your home.
How do I know if I have a xeriscape?
Having a Xeriscape is both what you have in your landscape and how you take care of it. Review the seven steps of xeriscape to determine which elements you already have in place. It is fairly simple to replace some turf grass, add mulch and learn to water efficiently.
