XERISCAPE: LANDSCAPING WITH STYLE in the ARIZONA DESERT

       


Mark Plant Locations
Using your completed landscape plan, mark the location of each plant with temporary marking paint or marker flags. Make a final check after marking all plant locations. Do the marks correspond with plant locations noted on your plan? Try to visualize the finished product. Are plants and trees spaced appropriately? Is this arrangement what you had in mind?
