Inspired by the Superbloom? What You Can Do in Your Backyard

Posted by Troy Scott on 03 May


The next time you hear the phrase “drought tolerant plants” and think of a dusty desert landscape, remember this spring’s superbloom.

Wildflowers are native plants, so they are perfectly adapted to their habitat. They can get by just fine, and reproduce as often as necessary to keep their particular flower species going, even when normal conditions are “adverse.” That’s just the way it is.

How To Create A Low Maintenance Yard

Posted by Troy Scott on 08 August

Posted by Troy Scott on 26 June


Drought tolerant landscaping is not the art of creating your own personal desert. It’s a design process that focuses on plants that can thrive with little water and hardscapes that help capture/retain moisture rather than allowing it to simply run off and be wasted.
