XERISCAPING

Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping that uses drought-tolerant and
native-species plants with low water needs. Proper plantings, along
with efficient irrigation systems and mulches help to preserve
moisture in the soil and prevent evaporation. The Long Beach
Water Department has an informative page on this subject with
