Milligan House Xeriscape Demonstration Garden
The Xeriscape Demonstration Garden, which opened on July 11, 2008, is located behind the historic Milligan House in Flagstaff. The project, funded by a grant between the Bureau of Reclamation and the City of Flagstaff, is one of the first high-desert Xeriscape gardens in Arizona. The City’s water conservation office will partner with the Master Gardener program to provide educational programs about irrigation methods, appropriate low water use plants and xeric landscape design.
Watered with recycled water, most of the garden’s plants came from the Flagstaff Fabulous Plants list, which is available on the city website. The garden was designed by Schaafsma Design. Stone and ironwork were fabricated by Tomas Robison of Stonecrop Landscaping. Irrigation, pathways, and planting were performed by Native Plant & Seed.
