Abstract/Contents:The increasing need for water conservation in Texas has led to the Texscape program which is aimed at preserving natural landscapes and conserving natural resources. The program can reduce water use (by 50%) and landscape maintenance through the use of adapted plant materials in landscape designs with a minimum of intensively maintained lawn space. Selection of low maintenance grasses which have adapted to a specific terrain and climate also helps. Includes tips on plant selection, landscape design, site preparation, cultural practices and maintenance. Tables on turfgrass fertilization and water requirements. Maps of grasses adapted to vegetative regions of Texas.
Geographic Terms:Texas, USA
