Xeriscaping is landscaping that requires no supplemental irrigation once plants have been established. Native plants that are well adapted to the environment and climate can help reduce the need for watering in a garden. Alternatively, landscapes can be designed to eliminate the need for irrigation through water conservation. This class will explain techniques for creating a more drought-proof garden and discuss native plants for xeriscaping in New England.
