Overview

Creating your own Prairie Urban Garden showcases the beauty of southern Albertan native flowers, creates habitat, results in a low-maintenance yard and saves water! 

Xeriscaping is a landscaping method especially developed for arid and semi-arid climates that uses water-conserving techniques, mulch and efficient irrigation. By planting native and drought-tolerant varieties that naturally thrive in the dry prairie environment, you will need less water, and little to no pesticides or fertilizers. That helps protect water quality (Goal 6)! You can enjoy a beautiful yard, complete with gorgeous blooms, save on your monthly water bill - and do very little maintenance on it.
