Special to the Current

Our extended drought doesn’t have to leave you with a lifeless, dried-up landscape.

A well-planned, sustainable Texas native landscape can provide a thriving and green outdoor space with year-round color and wildlife habitat without a lot of maintenance and water requirements.

Native landscaping is as simple as taking cues from what works in nature – Texas native plants are suited to our soil and climate, need no special amendments or fertilizers. Once established, natives also need little to no water as most can survive on rainfall alone.
