Fall is THE Time to Plant Trees

Fall is the perfect time to work on Landscaping-  Most people assume Spring is the only time to work on your landscape, but Fall is actually much better, especially in our Texas heat. Trees and perennial plants need time to set down roots in the Fall and Winter, so they can thrive in the Spring. Trees and native plants need far less water to establish in Fall and Winter as opposed to planting in Spring and Summer. 

We are running a tree planting special. Pick from any of the three recommended low water large shade trees below for one flat "tree and installation" fee of $500 plus sales tax. Tree will come in 30 gallon size (approx. 8-20 feet height depending on tree type*).

1. Mexican White Oak 
2. Live Oak 
3. Mexican Sycamore

Please contact us to set up installation time.


*other tree options and sizes are available.

Planting large shade trees, like this Mexican Sycamore, are a great way to cut down on your utility bills, by planting to the southwest of your house.

While many folks use the words Low Maintenance and Xeriscape interchangeably, I always like to warn my clients that it does not mean NO maintenance. Xeriscapes are low maintenance compared to a well maintained turf lawn. Xeriscapes require less water, fertilizer, and grooming in the long haul, but be prepared for battle with the weeds. The two most insidious weeds to fight are nut sedge and bermuda grass. While there are many tools for battle (hoop hoe, herbicides, or propane torch), maintaining the weeds in your xeriscape will be challenging. Terra Dura will stand with you in the great Battle of the Weeds pouring out our very own blood, sweat, and tears. We look forward to hearing from you to set up a plan to keep your home native. We specialize in xeriscape installation, but we can do it all from native plant care to landscape installation.  Please contact us to set up a meeting.
