Xeriscaping in Corona
You might have heard the term xeriscaping, also known as drought-tolerant landscape design. It refers to landscape design that uses native drought-tolerant plants to promote a balanced ecosystem. Xeriscape landscaping has long been popular in arid climates. But, with water becoming increasingly scarce, Corona companies have adopted xeriscaping too.
Sorrells Landscape’s xeriscaping services are designed to give you a stunning garden that helps you save time, money and water.
The Seven Principles of Xeriscaping Design
Sorrells Landscape follows the seven principles of xeriscaping when we design your sustainable landscape. By following these steps, we deliver exceptional, cost-effective results.
1. Strategic Design
We consider your needs, budget, and desired aesthetic when designing your new landscape. Strategic design also involves grouping plants according to their water needs. This allows us to develop a more effective irrigation system.
2. Improving the Soil
When soil is dry and barren, plants can’t thrive. Aerating and fertilizing your soil helps it retain enough moisture to sustain plant life. It also allows for proper drainage to reduce puddling.
3. Choosing the Right Plants
The best xeriscape plants are those native to Corona. Native plants have already adapted to soil and temperature conditions. As a result, they’re able to withstand tough environmental conditions. They’re also more resistant to disease and insect infestations.
4. Reducing the Amount of Turf
Lawns are the biggest culprits when it comes to water waste. A vibrant green lawn is beautiful, but it drains your resources and costs a lot of money to maintain.
5. Irrigating Your Landscape
Drip irrigation systems give your drought-tolerant plants the water they need without wasting any. You’ll also save time not having to stand around with a hose.
6. Mulching Your Beds
Mulch is a term used to describe anything that covers the soil around your plants; for example, organic mulch includes bark, grass clippings and compost. Inorganic mulch is made from anything that is non-living, such as stone and plastic. Three to four inches of mulch provides a barrier that allows your soil to retain moisture.
7. Maintaining Your Xeriscaping
Sorrells Landscape’s job doesn’t end after installation. We’ll also help you develop a comprehensive maintenance plan to keep your landscape looking great. Xeriscape landscaping requires less work than most gardens—so little attention goes a long way.
The Benefits of Xeriscape Landscaping
Above all else, you’ll enjoy a sustainable landscape design. Xeriscape plants require two thirds less water than typical landscaping. It’s low-maintenance, so you save on lawn care costs! While the initial xeriscape cost is expensive compared to laying down turf, the long-term savings will compensate. With less mowing, fertilizing, and dethatching, there are minimal operating costs. Xeriscape plants are cost-effective and add a unique look to your commercial property!
