Water conservation has become a very important consideration when gardening in the Western United States. Back in 1981, an environmental planner for the Denver Water Department, Nancy Leavitt, coined the word "Xeriscape" from the Greek word “xeri” for dry, (needing lttle water) and “scape”, meaning view or scene.
