The final results are in for Nevada home owners looking to add Xeriscape to your abode! Part 3 of this multi-part blog series walking you through the steps of the Xeriscape Nevada process is here! The River School Farm team has finished planting, mulching, adding DG paths, and completed all of the irrigation of the front yard of this Reno, Nevada rental house. Let’s take a look at the before and after photos.
Lots of planting happened during project. As time passes, the growth will continue. The yard will begin to take shape and mature. The berries, herbs, and fruit trees will begin providing great fruits and veggies for the home owner. Look at that beautiful rich mulch that contrasts the golden DG so well.
The difference without the front hedge opens the front of the house. The DG pathways look great and allows the home owner to take care of the many plants with ease.
The PROTECT mulch looks great and will help hold water. On average, the use of this fertile mulch will save 2-3x in water and will also provide nutrients to the soil. The efficient drip system will help save on water. This Xeriscape Nevada home is now more drought resistant! Also, PROTECT has fire resistant capabilities and was the “least combustible” landscape mulch in University of Nevada, Reno test trial. You can read about the test trial here: The Combustibility Of Landscape Mulches. PROTECT is the “composted wood chips” supplied by Full Circle Compost.
Xeriscape Nevada project with Full Circle Soils & Compost and the River School Farm is a success. Seeing the results in the next year will be a testament to the soil fertility power. Saving water, having less maintenance, and adding edible landscape to the home owner will create long term value for this home. Check out Part 1 and Part 2 to see the entire project!
