New Mexico’s high desert climate makes it difficult to keep a lush lawn, but that does not mean your yard should be left to the weeds. LaBarge Landscape can create, install and maintain a xeriscape landscape that features the beauty and hardiness of native desert plants.
Benefits of Xeriscaping
Xeriscaping offers two benefits that homeowners can’t ignore:
With seasonal weed control and proper irrigation, xeriscape yards require significantly less work and water than lawns.
A xeriscape yard saves you money in water you don’t use and don’t pay for. But when you transition from a grass lawn, you can save even more through the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority rebate.
LaBarge Landscape is an ABCWUA preferred landscape contractor. We know what specifications need to be met for rebate eligibility, and we help you fill out the paperwork.
Xeriscape Installation Done Right
Xeriscape yards are only low-maintenance if they are installed properly, which requires:
- Fabric underlayment to suppress weed growth
- Leveling and setting subgrade for proper drainage
- Careful plant and plant position selection
- Drip irrigation system
- Seasonal weed control
The landscape professionals at LaBarge Landscape have decades of combined experience. We do more than provide you with a pretty xeriscape yard. We do the installation right to ensure you get a yard that weathers seasons of winds, drought, monsoons and more.
Maintain Your Xeriscape Yard
Xeriscape yards are low-maintenance, not no-maintenance. There is some work required to keep drought-resistant plants healthy and your landscaping groundcover in the right places. LaBarge Landscape is happy to take care of your on-going xeriscape maintenance needs. Contact us for a free estimate for all xeriscape services.
