Xeriscaping is a form of gardening in which plants that are more drought tolerant are incorporated into a garden, reducing water usage. Under persistence water shortage, such as in SW United States, xeriscaping can be significant water conservation strategy. In order to promote wider use of Xeriscaping in home gardens, we developed a Xeriscaping App that can help individual households transform their gardens. To this date, we have been able to create a comprehensive database, a code to sort the database, and an App prototype. We believe that in our future we will be able to have a large impact on gardens within the US and drastically reduce the risk of droughts within the US.
