One element of landscape design that is overlooked, but is part of any energy efficient design is water conservation. While in the past, only arid areas of the country were concern about water conservation. Today, water resources and conservation are a concern across the United States.
Landscape design that deals with water conservation is called xeriscaping. This type of landscaping is based on seven principles that are generally used in all landscaping projects. The difference though is the plant material that is chosen.
The first principle is one that all projects should start with and that is planning and design. Many mistakes are made when planning is done off the hip and haphazard planting occur. If your landscape already exists and you want to convert it to a xeriscape type of design, start slowly and do your research. If you are starting from scratch, again start slowly and do your research.
