Ideas for Xeriscape garden for a business
I have been drafted to replant the planter boxes at my job because everyone at work knows I like to garden. Thing is, I don't really know too much about xeriscaping, and that is the type of garden they want. Not anything overtly "desert looking", but something that can withstand the drought, and will also flourish when typical Houston humidity eventually returns.
I am working with planter boxes that are 3.5' tall, 3' wide and 20' long on each side of the door. They face directly west.
A few plants I am considering are yucca, bulbine, fernbush, plumbago, sedum stonecrop, and fountain grass (maybe the purple kind) but I have a lot of trouble putting together a balanced looking plan with interesting height variations and other design elements. Anyone have any ideas how to put these (or other suggestions, I am very open) together in these planters to make something that is dignified and attractive for a business?
