'Xeric' Landscape Design by Earthwise Horticultural Services LLC Winter Springs Florida 

Earthwise Case Study:  079

Xeriscaping influenced landscape plan with that would give them an alternative to sod.

  • This property has two large trees with roots that tie up all the topsoil underneath them
  • These roots prevented any type of grass from taking root
  • For years our Clients spent money simply replacing a failing lawn
  • The HOA was constantly unsatisfied with the condition of the front yard
  • They wanted a better solution...

We began with a consultation on options for a recommended course of action, plant material choices, pros, and cons.

Shade tolerance and Florida friendly concepts to be integrated.

Water wise plant material and irrigation system evaluation, the old configuration was set up for lawn and we do not want to water open areas of rock.

Our solution: 

  • We offered a pallet of tough Florida friendly plant material to choose from
  • Our approach was comprehensive in nature
  • You can see from the pictures that the tree root system was thick
  • We had to cut each hole open with Pulaski axes
  • We go back every year to perform recommended care
  • The landscape still looks nice
  • Another yard of the month winner!

We used shell ginger and lily of the nile.
