Landscape Design Near me
Xeriscaping is landscaping your space in ways that reduce or eliminate the need for water. It is promoted in regions that do not have easily accessible or reliable supplies of fresh water, and it is gaining acceptance in other areas as climate patterns shift. Some benefits of xeriscaping include:
Saving water: For most of North America, over 50 percent of residential water used is applied to landscape and lawns. Xeriscape can reduce landscape water use by 50-75 percent.
Less maintenance: Aside from occasional pruning and weeding, maintenance is minimal.
No fertilizers or pesticides: Using plants native to your area will eliminate the need for chemical supplements.
Improves property value: A good xeriscape can raise property values, offsetting the cost of installation.
Costs will vary depending on the size and location of the project. On average, it will cost $4, 200 to have a landscape designer create a detailed plan for your property. For simpler projects, it’s also possible to get one to two hours of on-site verbal consultation for $50-$100 an hour. On the high-end of the scale, name designers and architects charge $6, 000 or more for detailed plans and drawings.
You will also need to purchase the landscaping materials recommended by your designer if you decide to go the route they suggest.
