Transform Your Outdoor Space – Low Water Landscaping Ideas

    Living in the arid climate of Southern Utah, we are always trying to discover means to conserve water. One of the most effective ways of saving water is by xeriscaping. Both functional and fashionable, this trend not only conserves water, but also enhances the surrounding natural beauty and guarantees a flourishing garden.

    Avoid an expensive water bill by utilizing native desert plants, like an exotic desert palm, a classic prickly pear, or an animated banana yucca. Being drought-tolerant, this vegetation thrives with little water and look their best when paired with classic desert accents or a zen-like garden.

    Below are a few fabulous before and after back yard transformations to inspire you in your landscaping.
