Xeriscaping can look wonderful or really, really, terrible.  I would consult a professional or look at a lot of landscaping books before starting.  Many areas in the West have wonderful water conservancy facilities that provide gardens and landscape ideas for free.  Check it out in your area!

IMPORTANT TIP:  Choose colors in your gravel, curbing, and other hardscape that complement the area in which you live, as well as the water wise plants from your region.  As much as I love the red rocks and dirt of Southern Utah, trying to replicate that look in another area could look like a sore thumb and completely out of place.   And palm trees wouldn’t have a prayer where I live!
