Lawns need a lot of water to stay green. Gravel, mulch and garden beds combinated are great ways to cover large areas. If you don’t want to eliminate them, there are eco-friendly lawn alternatives that require less water and maintenance.
Choose drought tolerant plants. There is plenty beautiful choices for your garden. Euchaliptus, Succulents, Lavender, Sunflowers, Bunny Tails, are just some options that will add georgeus textures and scents.
Take advantage of the natural tendency of water to move downhill, even over low grades. This is an important concept in xeriscaping design. Xeriscaped areas are rarely flat like lawns might be.
Prevents weeds from growing, and it conserves what little moisture there is in the soil below. Mulching with finished compost or well-rotted manure helps to build soil’s structure and fertility over time.

The trick is to irrigate efficiently. Watering deeply and infrequently encourages deeper root growth. This is easily accomplished by a Drip irrigation system.
