During the drought, xeriscaping has become more vital in California than ever before because it cuts down on the amount of water needed at a property. Besides eliminating the need for water xeriscaping is also great because it requires almost no maintenance and this means you won’t have to wonder if your tenants have mowed the lawn or kept up the landscape maintenance surrounding your rental property.
Mulch & Rock
When installing low maintenance landscaping at your rental property you should also use more rock, decomposed granite (DG), and mulch because these landscaping materials will cut down on the need to landscape the areas surrounding your home with actual plants plus the will also help you to cut down on your water costs as well since you won’t have to water areas that are covered with rock or mulch.
Consider Patios and Decks
