As we discussed about landscaping trends 2020 for the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota, people tend to seek low-maintenance landscapes such as less manicured lawns and low-maintenance plants. In this blog, we are focusing on low-maintenance plants for xeriscape landscaping for a low-water landscaping project in Minnesota.
Xeriscaping is a system of designing and installing landscapes that are suited for low water areas, which is equivalent to low maintenance. The best types of plants for Minnesota or the Twin Cities region in this xeriscape landscaping would be native prairie types of plants, because those Minnesota native plants thrive in dry areas. Whether you live in a country of Minnesota or a city such as Minneapolis or St. Paul, native plants are the best choice for xeriscaping, because they have already thrived in your surrounding area without any help of a landscaper.
Ornamental grasses such as Calamagrostis x acutiflora also known as Karl Foerster or Feather Reed Grass would perfectly work for xeriscape landscaping and are one of the perennials in the landscape to maintain easily. Those grasses are drought tolerant and virtually pests and disease free. Particularly, this Feather Freed Grass is deer resistant, which suits Minnesota residential landscaping. The Kari Foerster provides majestic looks in the winter season and is easy to care in the summer season. It is also hardy in most parts of Minnesota.
