What's an Acadian To Plant in Texas?

Love brought this Acadian to San Antonio. But it wasn’t long before I realized having a lush grass landscape in South Texas takes way too much work and water to maintain.

I wanted a landscape that is useful and that thrives in this climate.

Mediterranean Gardening in South Texas

San Antonio's climate and geology are ideal for a Mediterranean garden. Our Hill Country-like soils present the perfect opportunity for colorful, drought-hardy lawn alternatives.

Viva le Jardin!

Now that we're done honoring the Fourth of July, keep the spirit of independence going by celebrating Bastille Day and embracing France's flair for le jardin.

Texas is Francophile–friendly!

Bonjour, mon ami — it's Bastille Day! That's right. With a slight twist of fate here and there, Texans could be speaking French right now, mon chéri!

Water Intelligently

Surprisingly, the soil still has moisture from the spring rains, so water intelligently.
