Sample Landscaping Plans

Use these sample plans to get started designing a Xeriscape garden. For the first year, all plants need regular watering while they establish a root system. Water can be decreased the second year. Watch plants for indications of stress because their water needs depend on your soil type, sun exposure, and micro-climate.
