We Are The Team to Help You Create The Ideal Arizona Xeriscape

Phoenix and the surrounding area has a very dry, low rainfall climate. This makes for the perfect location to install xeriscapes.

What is an Xeriscape?

An Xeriscape is a form of landscaping design and build the relies on little to no irrigation. The most notable aspect of an xeriscape is its a way to conserve water where the resources are limited, through a very thoughtful landscape design. The possibilities of designs for xeriscapes are vast. Utilizing drought resistant plants that are native to the local area help improve the lively-hood of all xeriscape landscapes.

Why we suggest an Xeriscape:

Arizona is known for it’s desert conditions and limited water supply. Xeriscapes are an incredible way to conserve water. Plants found in xeriscapes require very little water to thrive in a desert climate. They are resilient to the dry conditions and limited rainfall.  Limited maintenance is also a major advantage to using Phoenix Valley Landscaping’s xeriscape design services. Most xeriscape plants are self-sustainable and require very limited landscaping care after installed.

Fertilizers and Pesticides are also considered a thing of the past when considering the installation of an xeriscape. Since most of these plants are native to the area, they have the ability to fight off disease naturally.

Its no wonder xeriscapes are a perfect choice for Arizona. They maintain a beautiful look, and add value to any landscape design throughout the year. Support the local habit and consider an xeriscape for your home or office landscape design.
