Our Xeriscape Grass Mix is heat and drought tolerant. As a general rule this mix requires far less maintenance than conventional turf grasses. This mixture takes a short amount of time to become established, but it has a slow and low growth rate. Depending on your goals, you may only need to mow it a few times a year. Slow growth means more competitive undesired species (weeds) can move in before establishment. Regular weeding as it establishes is vital. Because much of this mix is a bunch grass it can assume a clumpy look, especially when unmanicured or unmowed. It tolerates low to medium foot traffic

About Xeriscape Landscaping

Xeriscape landscaping was developed for drought-prone locations or water-conserving properties. It is being used more and more in commercial and residential areas to replace lawns in places where water conservation is important. Xeriscaping uses drought-tolerant, often native plants to save water and reduce yard waste. Landscapes need to be planned to work with the water, soil types, and sunlight that is available in the area.

Xeriscape not Zeroscape
“Xeriscape” is often spoken as though it begins with Z, leading to the typo zeroscape (as if it signified “zero landscaping”). This is problematic since “zero” makes us think of a barren landscape.

Desert Plants and Xeriscape
Xeriscape landscaping isn’t confined to barren desert vegetation. In non-desert settings, the method allows you to employ a range of appealing plants but demands on water-saving practices, such as combining plants with comparable water needs. This saves money, conserves water, and saves your plants from over-watering.
