When installing new plants in your Dallas, Texas yard you want to consider plants that are hardy and can withstand our hot, dry summers combined with sustainable landscaping practices. By taking this approach to installing new plants will save you time and money in the long run, so keep the following in mind:

• How much maintenance do you want? If you don’t wish to spend your free time watering, weeding and cutting, then your focus in installing new plants should be to find trees, shrubs and ground covers that are either native or will easily adapt to the climate and your soil.

• What about watering? Installing new plants will require more watering at the outset, but ideally, you should be able to minimize water use, so that you only water early in the day, and only when the plants need it.

• Mulch – Installing new plants should always include using mulch, as this will help the new plants develop stronger roots while limiting weed growth, erosion and loss of water.
