While for decades the idea of a green lawn and garden full of vibrant, pleasant smelling flowers has dominated how Hunlock Creek owners think of their outdoor space, xeriscaping is increasingly catching on as an environmentally friendly alternative to garden design.
Xeriscaping takes into account the climate and topography, creating a system that is perfectly suited to the conditions. While you may be picturing a garden that’s mostly made up of rocks and cacti, there are plenty of options out there for those looking to set something up. With R. Heritage Landscape & Maintenance Specs. Inc’s eye for detail, your xeriscape garden will be every bit as beautiful and vibrant as a traditional one.
Drought-tolerant and less thirsty plants don’t have to be boring. If you’re looking to add some color, why not opt for something like blue sage, whose flowers and fragrant smell make a wonderful addition to any garden, or poppies, which, with their vibrant petals, are certainly hard to miss. Rocks and drought-resistant grasses are also good to include in your garden, serving as a way to highlight and frame your more colorful plants.
The Many Benefits of Xeriscaping
The benefits of xeriscaping are numerous. Beyond requiring very little water, the plants used in xeriscaping require little maintenance, meaning the costs associated with it are lower than in traditional landscaping. It also means less time spent in the garden pulling out weeds!
Xeriscaping works with the environment, instead of against it. In many climates, achieving a beautifully green carpet of lawn is simply not sustainable, because the environment is not suited to that type of plant. By considering which native species exist in and around Hunlock Creek, R. Heritage Landscape & Maintenance Specs. Inc is able to create eye-catching gardens that flourish without too much upkeep on your part.
Another major bonus is how unique xeriscaping can be. As it’s a departure from the more traditional garden layout, xeriscaping allows you to truly exercise your creativity in finding interesting plants and rock formations to enhance the natural landscape of your property. With xeriscaping, the options are limitless. Contact R. Heritage Landscape & Maintenance Specs. Inc to start discussing your future garden today!
