What is a Prairie Urban Garden?

A Prairie Urban Garden is a yard or garden that follows the 7 principles of xeriscaping. They are attractive and have a low environmental impact because they are designed and maintained in harmony with our dry prairie environment. Xeriscaping principles allow people to create beautiful, drought tolerant and low maintenance gardens right here in southern Alberta!
