Landscaping in McKinney, Texas: A Real Challenge!

Real Estate Agent with Ebby Halliday Real Estate

North Texas offers unique challenges for gardeners and landscapers. We sometimes have winters that rival those of many states much farther north. We often have summers that rival those of New Mexico or Arizona. I also have struggled recently with landscaping because of the limited rainfall we have had. Just when everyone thought we were going to have to switch to desert plants we have started having very substantial rains. The good news is we have discovered a tool to help us select plants for our climate and rainfall needs. Visit . This interactive site will help you pick plants for annual or perennial plantings. The pictures of each plant type helps me put a name with a flower.

Ted, It's always interesting to read about other parts of the country, and see what challenges others are faced with. In Florida, we really don't have those types of problems. Thanks for the info.

I have a  son in Ft. Meyers and everything grows there year round. Try playing with the plant selection tool in my post. It is really a lot of fun.
