Landscaping with Xeriscape Principles

April 19, 2021

Lakestone promotes the principle of Xeriscape, which is a water-conscious creative landscape based on the use of indigenous and native planting. Consistent with Lakestone’s vision to respect and preserve the existing indigenous landscape setting, low water use plants are used in non-native areas. Xeriscape prioritizes water conservation using plant selection and grouping, mulching and grading to irrigate efficiently.

To focus on a xeriscape garden design, explore this selection of flowers and ornamental grasses that once established will delight your garden with minimal irrigation.
