- Walk, bike or drive around your neighborhood to get some design ideas. You may want to visit commercial developments and other residential developments as well.
- Keep a camera handy and take photographs of everything you like, no matter where you find it; from fabulous model homes to the bank on the corner.
- Keep a scrapbook. Put your photos there along with pictures you've clipped from magazines, newspapers and catalogs. Include pictures of outdoor furniture, pools and spas, patios, walkways, lighting, outdoor barbecue areas and other interesting and attractive landscape features.
The PHOTO GALLERY
has some examples of great Xeriscapes. Each has a different look and character. These examples are provided to give you some ideas and, perhaps, to inspire you during your own landscape process.
