No Grass- Xeriscape
Is it possible for a no grass front yard to look decent?
Several years ago, I removed the grass in my front yard due to water restrictions here in San Antonio, Texas.
The area next to the sidewalk (curb appeal area) often experiences temps in excess of 120 degrees.
Only a few Texas native plants such as cactus, yucca, sage and lantana, and cenizo (Texas ranger -leuchophyullum) have survived long term in this particular spot.
What happens is a sense of "business" in the yard and is not restful.
I would post a pic, but thought I would ask a more philosophical question.
The area next to the curb is awful and unlike grass, my eyes don't flow through this type of native vegetation -
Anyway, just wondering if it is possible for this type of xeriscape to look as decent as plain old grass?
