Too Much Rain?

Burroughs Landscaping discusses higher than normal rainfall this year.

If you are a duck, Texas Hill Country has been the place to be this spring and summer. Unusual for this part of the country, rainfall has continued to exceed normal amounts. Storm after storm has left record amounts of water in areas we are not used to seeing. What happened to droughts? We should not complain, as we will soon be back to drought conditions. Consider this if beginning to landscape your yard.

Burroughs Landscaping suggests considering if you really need grass. New grass may take off and grow for a month or so. When August arrives in a couple of months, then next summer rolls around dry as normal, you do not want to be saddled with excessive time and money spent watering unneeded grass.

If you decide you do need at least some grass, carefully consider just how much you actually need. Burroughs Landscaping specializes in choices that are low maintenance as well as cost efficient in the long run. 

Consider gardens to beautify your yards. A tree or yucca makes a great vertical component. Creeping ground covers offer texture while ornamental grasses provide movement. Agave and cacti give structure and patches of wildflowers add color. Keeping as much natural as possible can be amazing with less maintenance, time and money!
