Spring officially arrived this week. Eager gardeners may finally be able to garden without the threat of yet another snowfall.
After last year’s intense heat and drought, many people are making changes to their landscapes to prepare for watering restrictions.
This frequently involves replacing large landscaped areas with rock mulch. It reflects heat back onto buildings, will be a haven for weeds, and can look very stark.
The Okanagan Xeriscape Association’s (OXA) goal is to offer information and guidance to help people to create beautiful water-wise landscapes. Xeriscape is not synonymous with rock mulch. Xeriscaping is a method of gardening successfully with the climate.
