Here in Frisco we have truly beautiful homes! Part of what makes these homes so beautiful is the landscaping that surrounds them.
Good landscaping allows you to extend your living space out of doors, and to fit your lifestyle. As with any project, the key to success is planning. What would you like in your outdoor living room? Space for the kiddos to play? A relaxing fire pit to roast marshmallows over? Shady corners for reading? Seating space to entertain? A pit for horseshoes and bocce ball? The sky is the limit.
Once you have the function of your space planned, you can begin to incorporate waterwise elements; taking your landscape from good to great. Waterwise landscaping helps to protect our watersheds by reducing stormwater runoff, the need for excessive watering, and requires less fertilizer and pesticides.
If you’re thinking that this all sounds great, but are still at a loss for how to move forward, then think about attending our Water-Efficient Landscape Design Workshop on Friday, February 24, 2017. There, Texas A&M AgriLife expert, Patrick Dickinson, will walk you through the basics. Can’t make the workshop but still want to know more? Then visit Texas A&M Water University’s udesignit website for different landscape design plans and plant options. Texas Smartscape is another great resource as are local nurseries and garden centers.
So come on Frisco! Make your outdoor living space as beautiful as your home.
Landscape waterwise and you can not only enjoy the outdoor space, but also feel good about it!
