High Performance Landscapes

Private Residence, Dallas, Texas

An environmentally conscientious client offered the front yard of their house in Dallas as a setting explore and develop a zero-water use alternative to water thirsty turfgrass. “Happy Turf” is an eclectic mix of ecological sedges specifically developed to thrive in shady situations. A calendar of perennials provides color and an aesthetic satisfaction to overcome neighborhood preconceptions that water conservation produces dry and dull environments.
