John, The Xeriscape of Albuquerque is beautiful. I remember from living there for 5 years what beauty you could find with little or no water. We all should xeriscape more and cut down on water usage nationwide. Great post!


Came over from Kathy's post, by the way.

Good morning John,


Somehow I missed your post but caught it on Kathy's post this morning. Your photos are charming and we are starting to have many homeowners in Austin moving to xeriscaping. Utilizing our native plants makes sense. Water is a precious commodity and everyone is trying to protect this valuable resource!

Great post John.


Vacationing in the desert has made me much more aware how the landscape issues that you must deal with in New Mexico.

John, the lower picture looks similar to a "Cottage" garden. That's a look that i wouldn't expect with Xeriscape. Everyone should be practicing this method no matter where they live.

Got my lesson on xeriscape. I had seen the word but had never looked it up. Here in FLorida, with so much water, I guess it is not as common.

Xeriscape Landscape - Easy To Maintain & Little Water Needed


There is an odd word utilized here in the High Desert of Albuquerque NM known as Xeriscape. So What in the world is Xeriscape pronounced (Zeri-scape) you may ask. The word actually comes from the Greek Xeros (Dry) and landscape. A lot of people hear this word and then incorrectly pronounce it as Xero or Zeroscape. Xeriscape is certainly not zeroscape in fact it can be quite pleasing to the eye.


Albuquerque Xeriscape
Xeriscape with Rock and Plants

Here in the High Desert of Albuquerque where the altitude can be 6,000’ in the foothills area and 5,280’ (1 Mile) in the center of town. Night time temperatures drop quickly at sundown. Unlike the other mile high city water here in Albuquerque and New Mexico in general is scarce and conservation of it is a constant push. Over 70% of the city’s water use is for landscape so the local Water Utility Authority offers rebates for families and business that make the switch from a high water use landscape to the low use Xeriscape model. The city authority is also known to issue stiff fines for homes and business who choose to waste our precious water.


Xeriscape Ideas Albuquerque
Xeriscape brings nature

Xeriscape utilizes low water use plants that are well acclimated to this special climate and elevation. Xeriscape is generally a combination of crushed rock, boulders or decorative rock and the plants are beautiful attracting humming birds, bees, butterflies and a multitude of other birds. Once established xeriscape is very easy to maintain with little trimming, no mowing or edging but some occasional weed pulling. When in Albuquerque you will notice this common theme in many parts of the city including the 10 acre “Big I” interchange of I-25 & I-40.


So don't Zeroscape but Xeriscape you’ll be glad you did, so will your wallet.
