Are you still nurturing a lush lawn and a green backyard? You may be thinking that you are reducing carbon footprint, but in the process, you are depleting a huge volume of fresh water resources. Lawns are usually the #1 culprits. For a lush green lawn without any ugly brown patches, you need to turn on your sprinkler at least twice a day. You may even need to water your lawn and your plants on a daily basis. This can consume upwards of 100 liters of water, depending on the size of your garden.
Why opt for xeriscaping?
You can turn your water guzzling front lawn to a breathtaking xeriscape design with the right guidance. At Rock On Walls and Falls, that is what we do. We help people conserve energy and save water without compromising their real estate value. We always suggest the amateur xeriscapers to start with buffalo grass and blue grass. These demand least maintenance. You can forget to invest in a timer-sensitive sprinkler system or going out to water your lawn in the scorching sun. In fact, you can get new hybrid blue glass and buffalo grass that create the same toe-tickling luxury of a traditional lawn.
Xeriscaping is the new trend. When you move into your new home complete with a Rock On Walls and Falls xeriscaping design, you will be the talk of the town. You will be the new neighbors who care about the environment as much as they care about the beauty of their home.
Smart water usage
Irrigation is not a problem with this new form of landscaping. It primarily focuses on the efficiency of the watering system. While you can water sections of the garden by hand, the rest of the garden can take care of itself, especially if you have a natural source of water in your yard or lawn. The efficient form of delivery ensures that the water reaches the roots of all plants with the help of soaker hoses or bubble emitters.

The right plants at the right places
All you need to do is, give Rock On Walls and Falls a call to analyze your land. Just like you would not expect a palm tree to grow in the arctic zones without ardent care, you cannot expect delicate flowering plants to survive the direct heat. The landscape of your new garden will depend a lot on the natural weather conditions, soil conditions and the water retention abilities of the natural topography.
Recycle and conserve
Rock On Walls, and Falls always tries to include rainwater conservation and recycling in xeriscaping. You will find many rock structures to hold natural rainwater in our online catalogs and testimonials. We will find the areas in your plot that generate much runoff during and after rainfall, and we will try to utilize that source for watering your new plants.
Xeriscaping does not mean sparsely green hardscaping. With the right guidance from Rock On Walls and Falls, you can create a green yet water conserving expanse right outside your home.
