Landscaping tips for our hot summer weather

Texas can be a challenging place to create and maintain beautiful landscapes. Drought is common and weather can be extreme. However, with a little knowledge and professional help you can have the landscape of your dreams.

Your property offers a great opportunity to extend your living space and create a gathering spot for family and friends. Many parts of Texas have a climate that is suited to outdoor living during most of the year. For this reason, swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, and fire features are popular additions. If you have the space, consider adding a sports court such as bocce ball or volleyball. With features such as these your home will quickly become the place everyone wants to be.

Xeriscaping is another landscaping option becoming increasingly popular in Texas due to the water restrictions. The common assumption is that xeriscaping involves turning the entire yard into a rock garden. Contrary to that belief, xeriscaping is just a well-planned design for yards that minimizes water consumption through the use of low-water plants and grasses as well as designed areas for decks, patios, shady spots and benches.

There are numerous plants and flowering perennials that do fantastic in our hot humid weather. There is a list of Texas Superstar plants that have proven themselves in our climate. You can research this online to find out the different varieties or give Silversand Services a call to let us help you with answering any of your questions or needs.

Another great thing to be using is organic fertilizer. They make it for turf, shrubs, annuals, and perennials. It is totally safe because it is made with all natural ingredients. Because it does not have any toxic chemicals, it is safe to touch which is great for areas around the family where children may be.

These are just some of the great ideas you have available to you for your landscaping. Please give Silversand Services a call today and let us know how we can help.
