Commercial Xeriscape Landscaping Services in Dallas, TX
Commercial property owners and managers in Dallas are often looking for ways to keep their landscape looking vibrant and appealing, but it can take a lot of water to keep landscaping lush, green, and healthy, especially in the hot summer months. For those desiring a landscape design with lower water and maintenance demands, xeriscaping is an environmentally friendly alternative to standard garden design. We offer a full range of top-quality commercial xeriscaping for the Dallas metroplex.
What Exactly is Xeriscaping?
Xeriscaping is a form of landscaping that uses native and adaptive plants, rocks, and other ground covers to create beautiful landscapes that help reduce the need for heavy irrigation. With increasing local water restrictions and persisting drought seasons in many parts of Texas, xeriscaping is becoming more widespread.
Instead of having turf and ground cover areas around apartment communities and commercial buildings, it is more efficient and sustainable to incorporate indigenous plant materials to ensure low water usage.
While you may be picturing cacti, rocks, and delightful desert-themed landscapes, that is not the case. Xeriscaping has plenty of options and greatly varies depending on the climate and topography of a region. A good landscaper can integrate traditional green scaping and xeriscaping elements to create a complete look.
Other hallmarks of xeriscaping include;
- Optimal use of mulch
- Rich, organic compost
- Efficient irrigation practices
- Sloped terraces to discourage water runoff

Benefits of Xeriscaping on Your Commercial Property
Xeriscaping offers a myriad of aesthetic, environmental, and economic benefits. These include;
Common Plants for Use in Xeriscaping
Xeriscaping is about choosing plants, turf, and trees that are ideal for the environment or the weather conditions in that area. We know what plants and rock formations work best to make your Texas landscapes sustainable and appealing. Most of our xeriscape designs will highlight native Texas plants like the Yucca, which can thrive from season to season with minimal care. There are several varieties of this drought-tolerant plant, all of which do well in the Texas climate.
For drought-tolerant ground cover, buffalo grass and Bermuda grass are excellent choices. Beyond low water use plants, other varieties such as bald cypress can be chosen to add shade to sunny areas. The key to an interesting xeriscape landscape combines Texas natives with well-adapted exotic plants.
