As many homeowners seek to reduce their environmental impact when purchasing new houseplans through energy efficient appliances, solar panels, and utilizing eco-friendly building materials like bamboo, sustainable landscaping is also gaining popularity. Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation. Pronounced “zeer-i-scape,” it’s a combination of two Greek words: “xeros” (dry) and “scape” (view). At Modernize , they love the benefits of xeriscaping and how you can incorporate elements of this ecologically sustainable landscaping into the outdoor space of houseplans.
