Austin And Central Texas Drought Resistant And Tolerant Xeriscape Landscaping Resources

We Strive To Provide The Most Extensive And Relevant Xeriscape Landscaping Information For Austin And Central Texas Gardeners, Homeowners and Landscape Professionals. Note: This is a work in progress and will be updated on a monthly basis. You are highly encouraged to submit your favorite relevant blogs (or your own blogs as well!), favorite nurseries or insightful books.


Blogs are an excellent way to discover local plant and gardening lore. Different cities have different climates and what works well in one could fail miserably in another. Every blog has its own personality and flavor and it’s a real joy to explore and interact with gardeners all across our state. It is our hope, that in time we will be able to feature the best Texas gardening and Xeriscape landscape design blogs list. Help us by recommending through the comment form if we missed a great blog.
