If you were ever reading a paper or watching the news, you saw that Texas was on fire this past summer. With the most consecutive days over 100 degrees recorded, it was hot. It was also brown. Xeriscaping, choosing native plants that don’t consume any extra water, is popular, as it well should be, in Austin. My visit this past long weekend proved it.
Great post, beautiful pictures! I agree, xeriscaping is a fantastic concept, especially for all of us in the middle of drought ridden Texas. At the Sunfield Community Garden, we use special ways of watering and have applied xeriscaping methods to the garden and neighborhood to help with this issue.
