Desert Southwest Front Yard Ideas

This desert southwest front yard design makes use of a lot of different elements to get its look and atmosphere. Beginning with a Southwest style home, earthtone ground cover gravel, cactus, and fake riverbeds are unmistakebly the desert Southwest garden style.

The fake dry riverbed used in so many Southwest landscapes and xeriscapes is not only a desert scene but also most often adds a completely different texture against the ground cover that surrounds it. Adding a second color or even a different texture of ground cover helps add interest to the landscaping.

As far as the cactus go for being a choice of plants in this front yard, this is only one way of doing it. While most folks think that this is the perfect picture of xeriscaping, the possible techniques, plants, and planting combinations can be as colorful and green as any other yard and garden style. Along with native plants, adaptive and hybrids offer plenty of plant choices for desert southwest front yards.
