Scottsdale Xeriscape Garden at Chaparral Park
Visit the garden to see plants that thrive in cold weather, plants that are dormant and shed their leaves in wintertime, and plants that are susceptible to cold damage but will return in springtime to thrive during the heat of summer.
Here in the Valley, up to 70% of water is used in the landscape; reduce your water use and water bills by adjusting your irrigation schedule back for the winter months.
Watch the weather - if winter rains are sufficient, supplemental irrigation water may not be necessary. Turn off your irrigation clock during the wet months.
