Living in the high desert, it is massively important that we do our best to conserve water wherever possible. For many homeowners in Southern California, the biggest use of water is yard care. Grass is by no means drought-friendly, requiring massive amounts of water to keep it looking its best. With how much water usage can cost per month, and with many communities restricting how much lawns can be watered, many residents in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas are choosing to switch to more drought-tolerant landscaping options.
Owning a beautiful yard and being water-wise don’t have to be mutually exclusive. At JNR Home Improvements, we know that it is important to achieve both at your home. Switching from traditional grass to landscaping that lets you save on water will help you to get the most from your outdoor living spaces. We offer two main water-efficient landscaping options, each offering unique benefits. These options are xeriscape, also known as desertscape, and artificial turf.
Xeriscape or desertscape is a great option if you’re looking for a unique design for your outdoor living space. One of the main draws of desert landscaping is its eye-catching appearance.
Choosing plants local to the high desert will allow you the chance to design a striking yard while saving a lot in water usage. These plants were made to survive heavy drought and require only minimal amounts of water to thrive. With the installation of a water-saving drip irrigation system, your desert plants will continue to look amazing when traditional turf would brown and die.
For those that hope to save as much water as possible but love the cool sandy look of the desert, we offer plant-free rockscaping. Utilizing desert gravel and rocks, we can create stunning designs, including dry riverbeds and rock gardens.
There is a lot of freedom when it comes to xeriscape. Finding a design that suits your tastes is easy, and the results will make your home stand out in your neighborhood.
Artificial grass is a highly popular choice when it comes to low-maintenance landscaping. It offers the classic look of a live turf lawn while eliminating many problems associated with caring for grass, in particular, the high water costs.
Artificial turf allows you to fully eliminate your watering expense and almost all of your outdoor chores. You can enjoy a beautiful, healthy-looking lawn with none of the efforts that it takes to maintain grass.
Artificial turf is a great option for families and pet owners because its soft texture mimics the feel of live grass. However, it is far more durable! It stands up to heavy play and weather. Even in the rain, your yard won’t flood with mud, keeping your home safe from muddy paws.
Artificial grass takes away the pains of owning a lawn, replacing it with water-saving outdoor spaces that you can enjoy freely with your family. There won’t be any unnecessary water usage when you pick artificial turf for your home. It is always beautiful, and always ready for you to enjoy.
Choosing to make the switch from traditional to drought-tolerant landscaping can be one of the best decisions you make for your home. Not only is it better for the environment, but water-efficient landscaping can also wholly transform your experience with your outdoor spaces. By cutting out the constant upkeep of a grass lawn, you eliminate a number of monthly expenses and can enjoy your outdoor living spaces more fully. Whether you have a gardener come by once a week to tend your outdoor spaces, or if you do the work yourself, moving to a low-maintenance, water-efficient landscape will help you to save more of your money and time each month.
