Xeriscaping is a low-maintenance landscape solution that is perfect for reducing the time and money spent on lawn care needs, especially in the Floridian summer and its scorching heat and relentless rains. During this time, your lawn maintenance needs may spike with the rise in weed and plant growth that excess rain brings as well as with problems associated with heat damage. Not only are the benefits of having a xeriscaped yard seen through reduced maintenance for any season (from water conservation to not needing fertilizers or pesticides, and more), but also through improving your property value, compensating for the cost of installation. Furthermore, xeriscaping reduces fossil fuel consumption from gas mowers as well as provides a habitat for wildlife.
