Desert Landscaping in Santa Clarita

Although when we think of desert landscaping in Santa Clarita, we generally don’t tend to consider the possibilities of Desert landscaping or Xeriscaping. For one thing, it’s not typically native to the Santa Clarita Valley. This means most all yards are traditionally grass or concrete. In fact, I’d say conservatively that the vast majority of home owners would never even consider the use of decomposed granite or rocks as a landscaping idea. 

Desert landscaping is not a new idea. In fact, its the primary landscaping choice for those who live in the high desert, Palm Springs, Nevada and Arizona. For one thing, the desert landscaping idea has been around for a very long time. Mostly because of the lack of necessary water to keep the foliage thriving.
