XERISCAPE: LANDSCAPING WITH STYLE in the ARIZONA DESERT

       


Dig the Trench
  • If you haven't done so already, mark the location of all trenches with temporary marking paint.
  • About two days in advance, soak areas to be trenched with water. This will make digging a lot easier.
  • Dig the trenches six to eight inches deep, rounding corners to prevent the poly tubing from kinking during installation.
  • You can use a common trench for pipe/poly tubing connecting to different valves and wiring for low-voltage outdoor lighting.
