Where can I find a good landscaper that will use the Dirt Dr methods of bed prep & use xeriscape or Native Tx plants?

Do a google search for Native Dave. He lives in Plano and has a web site. I have seen his work and know him and his wife. I believe it's www.nativedave.com/

There's a gentleman in Dallas named Michael Parkey. I have taken several classes of his at SMU where he teaches about landscaping with native Texas and adapted plants. He is a landscape architect. I've also seen some of his landscapes around my East Dallas neighborhood. Beautiful. I'm sure he's in the book.

Let me know if you want and I'll send you a link to one of the yards he did that I saw on the yearly Dallas pond tour.

How beautiful! Would most suburbs in the DFW area allow this?

There is a home near us in W. Plano similar, maybe not that much 'no-mow' & don't I think anyone has complained b/c it looks so great.

Does anyone know the name of the grass/groundcover in sandi's pictures? This drought has me interested in plants that use less water. Thanks.

Another option (shameless self-promotion, LOL)
www.nativedave.com, click on 'portfolio'

I'm interested to know the location of the home in W Plano Patty mentioned. We have a cool project near Hedgecoxe and Robinson that thrived despite the drought. And yes, the homeowners strictly adhered to watering restrictions without snaking soaker hoses through their plants. They hand-watered (which is allowed) but only once every other week.
