XERISCAPE: LANDSCAPING WITH STYLE in the ARIZONA DESERT

       


Design Tips
  • Before drawing the preliminary design, review your wish list.
  • Then, look at the notes you made about your existing site.
  • Placing tracing paper over the site drawing will allow you to experiment easily with different design alternatives before making decisions. Computer software packages also are available to help you during the design process. View a sample landscape design.
  • Start by drawing in any hardscape elements you want to include in the landscape. If possible, draw them to scale.
