Drought-Resistant Landscaping / Xeriscaping

What is Xeriscaping?

Drought-Resistant Landscaping / Xeriscaping

The word "xeriscape" is derived from the Greek word "xeros," meaning dry, and "scape," a type of view or scene. Xeriscaping is currently defined as a method of landscaping designed to conserve resources required to maintain the landscapes. This is accomplished by selecting drought-resistant plants, designing water-efficient irrigation systems and using mulch to reduce evaporation. Xeriscapes reduce costs associated with water usage and labor needed for maintenance. California Creations designs and installs xeriscapes for customers throughout San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, Simi Valley and surrounding areas.

Comprehensive Projects:

Though it is possible to incorporate Xeriscapes into existing landscapes, it is best to have them designed from scratch. This significantly reduces the overall amount of resources required for maintenance. California Creations performs these projects from start to finish. We select appropriate drought-tolerant plants and we design and install water-efficient irrigations system. We create a perfect balance of resource reduction and aesthetics.

Important Features:

Xeriscaping reduces water usage and maintenance costs. The long-term savings will produce a healthy return on your investment. Below is a list of some of the items we consider when designing your Xeriscapes:

Drought-Resistant Landscaping / Xeriscaping
  • Grouping - We group the plants based on their watering requirements. This enables us to design irrigation systems that deliver accurate amounts of water to each plant without wasting water by overwatering or damaging plants by underwatering.

  • Drought-Resistant Plants - Though there are times when homeowners have some specific planting requests based on their personal liking, a larger percentage of the plants in xeriscapes should be drought-resistant. These plants need much less water and can grow in soil that has low water-holding capacity

  • Drought-Resistant Turf - We will be able to provide you with grass varieties that have a significant amount of drought-tolerance and ones which will grow in dry soil conditions. Centipede grass, bahiagrass, bermudagrass and zoysiagrass are some of the grass species that are drought-resistant. We will test the soil on your property and suggest which variety of grass will grow well in it. During extremely dry spells, the grass will be dormant and will turn green once it rains

  • Mulch - Mulch is very effective in reducing evaporation and is used extensively in xeriscapes. It can also be used in walkways and paths across the landscape
