ConservationView – Garden Tour & Xeriscaping


ConservationView
This is a word you need to know.

Xeriscaping is landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation It is promoted in regions that do not have easily accessible, plentiful, or reliable supplies of fresh water, and is gaining acceptance in other areas as access to water becomes more limited. Xeriscaping may be an alternative to various types of traditional gardening.

OK Modesto, just maybe the days of luscious lawns are gone. Even if we get a ton of new rain, a new style of landscaping may be in order. Less water is smart and some of the planting is really interesting.

MID has great ideas on ways to curb your water use at www.mid.org
