On Xeriscaping

“Planning is important, and we suggest everyone use drip irrigation,” said MacWithey, a horticulturist and certified landscape professional. “It’s very subjective as to what people want for their landscape. But there’s a Hill Country ‘look.’

A homeowner needs some perennials or evergreens so in the winter it doesn’t look like someone took a blow torch to their yard.”

“I try to use brown rock or mulch if the homeowner likes that,” MacWithey said. “Too much rock can hold in heat.”

[Kevin] likes to encourage the use of pots to add an art element in the yard. Pots, he said, can be fed with a drip irrigation hose from the bottom so they remain relatively care free.

“It’s also important not to overplant,” he said. “You don’t want to have to go out with a machete because of all the growth in the second season.”
