Xeriscape means dry landscape, but it also describes an attractive, sustainable landscaping style popular all over Colorado. Whether you want to conserve water or are looking for a more maintenance-free landscape, Xeriscaping may be the answer for you.
Xeriscapes typically range from colorful wildflowers to ornamental grasses, from low-growing succulent ground covers to flowering shrubs, and even evergreen and deciduous trees.
Natural mulches (popular throughout Boulder!) along with stonework and carefully selected rock are the perfect backdrops for Xeriscapes. They also help prevent erosion and retain moisture. Boulder Landscape Design (BLD) uses biodegradable mulches that contribute to the health of the landscape.
