Xeriscaping is landscaping using methods that reduce or eliminate the need for irrigation. This typically means native plants that are tolerant of the wide range of temperature extremes, and drought-resistant in our area.
A xeriscaped lawn need not be uninteresting or have a lack of color. There are hundreds of ornamental non-invasive plants that like our climate just fine. These plants will likely support the local fauna better, and ultimately be easier on your pocketbook through less water use and landscape maintenance. And because they will spread to find their own balance with each other, weeding will be unnecessary in just a few years.

They boosted insulation everywhere, removed the knob-tube wiring, and tied into our old uneven, un-level house beautifully and with the style reflecting the period of the original house (with the benefits and updates of living in the 21st century).
Job was done ahead of schedule.
