Xerascaping

The UA campus has long served as a grassy oasis in the desert. But in an effort to conserve water, areas of underused or purely ornamental turf have been replaced with desert landscape. Use of drought tolerant vegetation has become a standard practice for new campus landscapes, including the Founder's Plaza at Old Main. But since UA is a designated Arboretum, a diverse collection of plants - including some that require more water - will remain
