"Surely this is a concept whose time has come nationwide, given the recent droughts in the Northeast and South, in addition to an ongoing water crisis in the West. Garden writer Ellefson, landscape architect Stephens and water management expert Welsh take the reader firmly by the hand and concisely explain how to conceive, design and install a Xeriscape home landscape anywhere in the country."
