XeriScape, or Desertscape, is becoming one of the most popular landscaping options in Southern California, and it is easy to see why! From the striking elegance that Dryscaping offers, to how much it can save in water and maintenance costs, XeriScape can transform any property.
There are tons of reasons why Rosamond, Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita residents are choosing XeriScape for their properties. Here are five major reasons why desert landscaping is quickly gaining popularity:
Desert landscapes are a great way to increase the curb appeal of your home. Striking, eye catching, and unique, desertscapes allow you to easily give your yard a breathtaking sense of style.
XeriScape allows for a lot of design creativity. Some choose to go with plant-free rockscaping for their whole yard, while others incorporate native plant life into their yard’s design. You can even choose a hybrid design, using desert landscaping as an accent to lush, green artificial turf. No matter what you choose, it’s easy to capture your unique style with a dryscape terrain.
JNR Home Improvements is committed to designing your perfect landscape. When you come to us, we will help you to design a drought tolerant landscape that includes everything you could ask for.
2. Water Efficiency
When you live in the Antelope Valley or in Santa Clarita, you know the importance of saving water. Many communities in our area have tight water restrictions, often limiting watering to only twice a week. Taking care of a grass lawn is increasingly hard with these restrictions in place, but drought tolerant landscaping will thrive in these conditions and cut down on water usage at the same time.
Compared to more traditional landscapes, XeriScape is incredibly water efficient. Drought tolerant plants and shrubs require far less water than a grass lawn or a flower bed.
Utilizing a drip irrigation system will keep your yard well maintained without the need of a standard sprinkler system. Grass lawns require tens of thousands of gallons of water each year to stay beautiful. Desertscaping requires only a small fraction of this amount.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Through incorporating native plant species, or even no plants at all, desert landscaping is one of the most environmentally friendly options that homeowners can choose. By conserving water, Xeriscape landscapes help keep more needed water in our ecosystem, rather than wasting it on grass turf.
Additionally, Desertscaping helps to promote the local ecology. Many of the most popular drought tolerant plants are native to Southern California. By incorporating these native plants into your yard, you will help to cut down on invasive species, while also creating a beautiful landscape that you can be proud of.
4. Low Maintenance
If you have a busy life of work and taking care of a family, there’s not much time left to maintain a grass lawn. You can choose to hire someone else to handle the yard work for you, but that costs money that could be saved for something else.
Switching from a traditional landscape to a desertscape cuts out the need for constant maintenance and upkeep. Whether you choose to incorporate drought tolerant plants into your landscape, or if you choose a plant-free rockscape, your yard will stay beautiful without the constant need for mowing and watering.
If you dream of a yard that you can be proud of without all of the extra work to maintain it, desert landscaping might be the best option for you.
5. Low Cost
After the initial cost of installation, XeriScape is massively cost effective. Since you are using less water and time to maintain it, you are able to keep more money in your pocket each month.
Even installation is affordable with JNR Home Improvements. We offer plenty of financing options aimed at getting you the landscape you want at a price that you can afford. Many of our payment options cost less than what would be spent on water bills and maintenance. In almost no time at all, a desert landscape will start paying for itself.
With so many reasons to choose XeriScape, it’s no wonder that so many people have already moved away from traditional lawns! A dryscape can boost your home’s curb appeal while also saving you time and money for years to come. There are endless possibilities when it comes to drought tolerant landscaping, and JNR Home Improvements is ready to help you achieve the landscape of your dreams!

It’s no secret that Southern California homeowners love patio covers. There are so many benefits to installing a patio cover, that for most people the only thing stopping them is the potential cost. At JNR Home Improvements, we don’t think that should be the case. This is why we offer quality, cost effective patio cover installations along with several financing options to Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley residents.
Patio covers are a beautiful addition to any home. They provide a relaxing, shaded place to sit and enjoy the outdoors. For parties, a covered patio can give your guests a place to chat and drink. Whether you choose to install an energy efficient, insulated patio cover, pergola or an aluminum lattice patio cover, we offer everything you need to add a custom shaded oasis to your backyard.
One of the most exciting and money-saving options that we have available are solar patio covers. Our “Alumawood” style, aluminum patio covers can be built with solar panels installed, potentially eliminating your energy bill. By combining our popular insulated patio covers with high quality solar panels, we bring you an amazing cost-effective and energy conscious addition to your home.
Our insulated patio covers provide the ideal place to install solar panels at your home. Installing solar panels directly on your roof requires drilling into the roof itself, and may lead to damages over time. By placing the solar panels on your patio cover instead, you avoid having to make costly repairs later on. You will be able to fully enjoy the benefits that solar panels bring to your home without suffering any of the downsides.
By combining an insulated patio cover with solar panels, you will be able to reap double the rewards. Thanks to the design of our EnergyStar® rated, insulated patio covers, they are often able to cut down on energy costs, even without the addition of solar panels. Traditional patio covers, with shingled roofs, often absorb heat, rather than deflect it. At JNR Home Improvements, we instead offer covers with a laminated foam core that prevents the sun’s heat from going through the patio cover.
With many affordable financing options available, you get to choose how you pay. We believe that you deserve the yard of your dreams.

Living so close to the Mojave Desert, Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita residents are well aware of the need to conserve water. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the landscaping. Traditional grass lawns are losing much of their appeal in Southern California, where many residents turn to more Water Efficient Landscaping options.
In the heat of the summer, it’s common to see even well-watered lawns start to wither and brown. For many AV residents, switching to water efficient landscaping is a step towards a greener, more environmentally conscience lifestyle. Other homeowners choose drought resistant landscaping for monetary reasons; after installation, these landscapes save owners countless dollars in water bills and upkeep. Whatever your reason for looking into Drought Resistant Landscaping, it is one of the best additions you can make to your home.
One option is to opt for a drought resistant landscape featuring native plant species. While many homeowners love the unique and beautiful look of Desertscaping, many others are attached to the traditional look of a grass lawn. This is where Artificial Turf comes in! Artificial turf makes a great alternative for homeowners that want to maintain the look of a lush green lawn without wasting water.
Unlike live grass, artificial turf does not require fertilizer, mowing, or watering to maintain a lush, green lawn. By eliminating the need for mowing and watering, two of the least “green” aspects of caring for grass are gone entirely.
With an synthetic grass landscape, the grass will never be “greener on the other side.” Artificial turf allows for just as much creativity in landscaping as live grass. Artificial grass allows for customization in color, blade-length, and more, allowing homeowners to fully craft their ideal landscape. Furthermore, even with accent shrubs, flower beds, and trees, replacing your grass will limit water waste by a huge amount. You are in complete control of the look and feel of your yard when you choose artificial turf.
Advancements in production have made artificial grass virtually identical to the real thing, in both color and texture. There is no need to worry about how kids or pets will react to the synthetic grass anymore. High Desert residents can choose from tons of child and pet friendly turf options. From utilizing higher quality materials, to implementing clean drainage designs, synthetic turf is a more attractive option to homeowners than ever before!
Here at JNR Home Improvements, we are dedicated to bringing high quality artificial turf to residents throughout the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita. We want every one of our customers to be able to look outdoors on a truly unique landscape that they can feel proud of. With our commitment to satisfaction, we strive to bring the very best to our customers. With the installation of a new artificial turf landscape, you will raise the value of your home, save money, and become the envy of your neighborhood.
JNR Home Improvements was voted Best Landscaping Company in the Antelope Valley by the AV Press. As a leader in artificial turf installation, you can trust JNR to create a beautiful and lasting landscape at your home or business! Call or email us today to learn what we can do for you!

In the often blistering heat of the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita Valley having a shaded outdoor space allows homeowners’ to enjoy their outdoor space and a bit of fresh air. With this summers temperatures regularly exceeding 100 degrees many of us tend to forget about our backyards, myself included. That is, until the recent installation of our solid, insulated,aluminium patio cover.
Our backyard patio is on the South side of a white, two story home. In other words, it is in full sun all day long. The white stucco would reflect that all day sun onto the patio, adding to the heat and ultimately making our patio a no-go zone during Lancasters hot summer days. That same sun would also beat through the windows forcing the air conditioning to run almost non stop to keep the inside temperature comfortable.
As I sit on our now covered patio to write this blog our "alumawood” style, aluminum patio cover makes this outdoor living space one of our favorite “rooms” of the house. We opted for an EliteWood insulated patio cover (JNR Home Improvements is an authorized dealer) which features a very nice, deep driftwood, wood grain texture. Our covered patio also has three ceiling fans built into it, installed seamlessly as the awning was built with the electrical lines hidden safely inside of the roof panels. With the fans on now, a thermometer reads a full 25 degrees cooler in the patio shade than in the sun just outside of the shaded patio; yes 25 degrees cooler! That difference is what makes our patio such a nice place to relax instead of somewhere to avoid. An added bonus is the shade provided over our family room windows cooling that room as well.
Our covered patio was engineered and built for the excessive wind seen on the westside of the Lancaster/Quartz Hill area. While most aluminum patios are attached directly to an existing concrete patio slab, we had a beautiful new stamped and colored concrete patio poured. JNR Home Improvements was able to design our patio covering with fewer posts by engineering concrete footings into the City approved and permitted building plans. We also chose upgraded columns over the standard posts to better match our homes architecture.
Aluminum patio covers and pergolas by JNR Home Improvements can be custom designed to fit with the architecture of your own home without sacrificing any of the benefits that building with aluminum offers. Not only do our patio covers look great, they never need to be repainted. That statement is backed by a lifetime warranty on the finish. You never have to re-roof a metal patio cover and, if you choose to go with the insulated option, the shade beneath an EliteWood patio by JNR is cooler than any other option. It is no wonder why JNR Home Improvements builds more patio covers and pergolas than any other contractor in the Antelope Valley.
With virtually unlimited design options and almost as many financing options, having a high quality, professionally built and engineered patio cover or pergola by JNR Home Improvements is attainable for most homeowners. In fact, why would anyone settle an inferior wooden patio cover? JNR is your premier patio cover builder and authorized dealer for the industries top manufacturers. JNR Home Improvements has won many awards including this years AV’s BEST award, voted on by readers of the Antelope Valley Press.
