March is Texas SmartScape™ Month! SmartScape™ Month is a regionally coordinated effort to promote the water conservation, pollution prevention, recycling, composting, and waste reduction principles of Texas SmartScape™. These principles offer a variety of advantages for local ecosystems and homeowners’ wallets. SmartScape™ methods not only add aesthetic value, but also contribute to the control of temperature, erosion, and invasive species while providing a habitat for a variety of pollinators. These methods also mitigate the excessive amounts of fertilizer and water required by conventional lawns, which can harm local bodies of water and the wildlife that rely on them.
By incorporating Texas SmartScape™ plants and strategies into your lawn care routine, you have the potential to save money, time, water, and reduce harmful chemical use. SmartScape™ approved plants are native and adapted to the Texas climate and need less water and fertilizer to thrive in the intense heat of Texas summers. In addition, the Texas SmartScape™ program encourages proper design, care, and maintenance techniques to better protect the environment. Since March kicks off landscaping season, this is an excellent time to turn your yard into a resilient and attractive SmartScape™ yard by planting native and adapted plants. Plant with a Purpose and turn your lawn into a Texas SmartScape™!
