Trees for xero-landscaping


In our attempt to try to show in garden design what a xerophytic garden or xero- gardening has been , we are going to indicate which trees are indicated for this type of efficient or rational gardening. They are in the table because they consume few resources (both water and nutrients) and therefore are an example of trees that can be planted in areas with scarce water resources.

Here is our particular table of trees indicated for xero-landscaping or sustainable gardens.

Our idea at Gardenprue is to try to separate all plant species based on their nature. That is, distinguish between palms, bulbous, perennials, grasses, trees, shrubs, herbaceous, etc. In this case, it has touched the trees, which will form the sustenance of your garden within the xero- landscaping , then the bushes will arrive and so on until a wide range of plant species is completed.

Ziziphus jujuba or jujube. Has his particular article in Gardenprue


We curl the curl even more. The fact that a tree is appropriate for xerogardening does not mean that you can plant it in a coastal environment or is suitable for it. And the same thing happens the other way around, a tree suitable for a coastal environment will not always (although it usually be) will be an efficient tree in terms of resource consumption. These are some trees that you can use for xero-landscaping in a coastal environment:

  • Acacia cyanphylla: Acacia
  • Ailanthus altissima: Ailanto
  • Casuarina equisetifolia: Casuarina
  • Olea europaea: olivo
  • Punica granatum: granado
  • Quercus ilex: encina
  • Schinus terebinthifolius: Terebinto
  • Tamarix spp: Taraje
  • Atriplex halimus: Salad
  • Cistus spp: Jaras
  • Coprosma repens: Brilliant, Coprosma
  • Cotoneaster spp
  • Euonymus japonicus: Evónimo
  • Laurus nobilis: Laurel
