Landscaping a Green Building

A Green Landscape Conserves Water

 

This website is for the climate zone that includes North Central Texas or the DFW area such as Plano, Keller, or Dallas-Fort Worth Texas.  Regardless of your climate zone, the first priority for green building or energy-efficient remodeling is to hire an energy consultant and a green builder who understand and use up-to-date green building practices for your area. 

Even when you are harvesting rainwater, you needdrought-resistant landscaping natural to your area.

Why?

When your rain-harvesting cisterns are empty from lack ofrain, it is likely your area will be in drought conditions and lawn wateringmight be restricted. 

One home in the North Central area of Texas stores what isconsidered about three months of rain water in above-ground cisterns. In therain-stingy summers of 2005 and 2006, that would not have been enough water, hadit not been for the drought-resistant, natural Texas landscaping.
