This home is located in a new subdivision of Grand Junction that requires low water use planting. Finding native plants and a drip irrigation system is the perfect solution. In addition, the house level is lower than the surrounding land so to prevent flooding an efficient draining system was needed.
Landscapes in low water use neighborhood range from all rock in distant home to partial grass and rock/vegetation in foreground.
