XERISCAPE #11 a Texas Hill Country Yard ConversionGo Back
These clients attended a xeriscape seminar I presented. She is also a Master Gardener, so we collaborated in the design. Because their yard slopes towards their home, drainage was a concern. I proposed using boulders and matching moss rocks to terrace the slope, bring in deep organic soils, control the rain water run-off. We installed all native and adapted plants, with a concern about all the deer in their neighborhood. For a touch of fun, we built a dry creek bed at the bottom of the slope, in front of their front door. What a fun project.
