Xeriscape

The term Xeriscape is a method of landscaping that uses drought-resistant plants that are well adapted to a local area. Xeriscaping is often used as a water conservation strategy and is well suited as an option for regions that do not have easily accessible or reliable supplies of fresh water. The term is coined by combining xeros (a Greek word for "dry") with landscaping.

In some areas, terms such as water-conserving landscapes, drought-tolerant landscaping, and smart scaping are used instead. Plants whose natural requirements are appropriate to the local climate are emphasized, and care is taken to avoid losing water to evaporation and run-off. The specific plants used in xeriscaping depend upon the climate. Xeriscaping is different from natural landscaping, because the emphasis in xeriscaping is on selection of plants for water conservation, not necessarily selecting native plants.
