Pub. Date: 2022

View online >

Many property owners don’t fully realize that native plants are economical and effective solutions for use in landscape design, particularly since Idaho’s climate is so weather-dependent. This guide gently introduces you to some of the design issues involved for native-plant-based waterwise residential landscapes, in various contexts: the backyard, along streams and lakes, and home landscape design in general. The design ideas it might spark in you might decrease water costs and/or potentially improve aquifer and groundwater levels. A handy and printable checklist more easily helps you to identify your design goals, site type, etc. as you plan out your design.
