Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:166 EcoTip: Xeriscape is a landscaping term for low water use landscaping. By planting native and drought tolerant ground covers, grasses, trees and shrubs you can have an attractive yard that helps support native butterfly populations and birds while reducing the amount of water necessary. During a drought when you need to stop watering, the established plants may not look as attractive, but they are more likely to survive and revive when soil moisture levels return to normal.
