During the dry summer months, outdoor water demands lead to increased irrigation. One way to cut down on water use outdoors (and on your water bill) is to choose native Texas plants for your landscape. These plants are adapted to Texas’ climate and by design need less water. Pairing native plants with water conserving practices (rainwater harvesting, drip irrigation, mulching, composting, etc.) provide a homeowner a beautiful, distinctly Texas landscape that doesn’t require the amount of water and care of a non-water-wise landscape.
