Drought Tolerant Landscaping

If you believe you must choose between having a gorgeous yard and using a lot of water, think again. In the Peninsula region, property managers, business owners, and homeowners have shifted to drought-tolerant landscape designs that are elegant and well-thought-out without the typical maintenance and water waste of traditional landscaping.

What is Drought Tolerant Landscaping?

Val’s Lawncare will assist you if you’re ready to see what your yard could look like with a drought-tolerant landscape. We will be pleased to show you what your yard could look like, whether you know exactly what you want or are open to a few choices.

Xeriscaping, often known as drought-tolerant landscaping, is a type of landscaping that minimizes or does away with the requirement for watering plants with irrigation. When water supplies are few, xeriscape landscaping is the ideal solution for Menlo Park residents. A growing number of locals are opting to remove their water-intensive vegetation, such as lawns, from their homes. Xeriscaping is an ideal answer to this scenario.

Plan & Design

Planning and design combined with native drought-tolerant plants, mulching, and soil preparation are how Val’s Lawncare delivers exceptional services for your landscaping requirements. For a gorgeous xeriscaped yard that will last you for years to come, we may be your go-to resource.

Reducing Turf Areas

Typically, grassy turf tends to use more water, and requires more work to maintain than considered necessary in the Menlo Park area.

Due to the amount of upkeep and local water shortages, many people are gravitating towards grassless yards over the traditional look. However, grass does not necessarily need to be eliminated, and can be incorporated into the xeriscaping process. We’ll help you determine if and where you’ll have turf in your new landscape.

Choosing Local Plants & Zones

Many people are choosing grassless yards over traditional ones because of the maintenance required and the local water scarcity. Nevertheless, grass can be included into the xeriscaping process and does not always need to be removed. We’ll assist you in deciding whether or not to include turf in your new landscape. A few examples of San Diego native drought resistant plants used in xeriscaping are:
  • Succulents & Cacti
  • California Mountain Lilac
  • Canyon Grey California Sagebrush
  • Parry’s Nolina
  • Variety of Herbs
  • Deergrass

Preparing Your Soil

Plants cannot simply be planted in the ground and expected to flourish. The soil that plants are planted in must be rich in nutrients and capable of giving drought-tolerant plants the conditions they require. You must first prepare the landscape’s soil for the plants you have chosen before adding any additional flora.

With that, we can assist. Neris Landscaping will assist you in determining the type of soil your yard need to flourish.


You may effectively create the perfect environment for your plants to flourish by mulching some areas of your yard. Similar to wood chips, organic mulch aids in preserving moisture for the roots underneath. Like lavastone, inorganic mulch is both aesthetically pleasing and useful in maintaining a cooler, more humid earth beneath it. We offer a variety of mulch options based on what your yard requires.

Drought Tolerant Landscapes Require Less Maintenance

Like any yard, your newly constructed drought-resistant landscape will need ongoing upkeep when it is completed. The contrast between the maintenance required for a traditional yard will be evident immediately. You may optimize the beauty of your environment with little work if you have a xeriscaped yard.
