We’ve talked about native plants, but it’s time to specifically get into the topic of native grasses!
Like all native plants, native grasses have adapted to our weather meaning that they are able to withstand our extreme heat! This helps reduce the frequency of watering making them the perfect addition to a xeriscape garden.
It’s also known that their root systems help combat the effects of erosion in your yard! Perfect for those Houston rainstorms that wreak havoc on your yard.
As Texans, we can’t go without mentioning the beauty they add to your outdoor space! Most native grasses have amazing textures and colors that help add variety to your landscape.
