What Is the Concept of Xeriscaping?

Can Every Landscaping Service Provider Offer It?

We often receive calls from our clients asking us what Xeriscaping is and what is included in this type of service that we provide. In order to explain this better to them, the team of Milligan Scapes has decided to dedicate this article to this service which was not offered by any US landscaping service provider until after 1981 when the program was first introduced by the president of the Associated Landscaping Contractors.

Its name comes from the Greek word “xeros” which means dry and is combined with the word landscape. This is a program encouraging landscaping utilizing water conservation methods. In other words it makes creating a beautiful landscape while conserving water possible.

Xeriscaping has the following benefits:

  • It can reduce your costs for irrigation and landscape maintenance with more than 50%.
  • It reduces the water usage of your household with as much as 60%.
  • It reduces the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides commonly applied by your landscaping service provider, which does not only save you money (an average of about $200 per year) but provides a more environmentally-friendly and safe outdoor environment for your entire family.
  • If you intend to sell your property and you mention that you have utilized the Xeriscaping yard maintenance method, this can increase the total value of your property with approximately 10 to 15%.
