What is Texas SmartScape?
  • The purpose of SmartScape™ is to educate our citizens on the ecological, economic and aesthetic benefits of using landscaping plants, shrubs, grasses and trees that are native or adapted to our regional climate and local conditions. The ultimate goal is to conserve local water supplies and improve storm water runoff quality by reducing the amount of water needed to maintain landscapes while decreasing the amounts of pesticide, fertilizer and herbicides used in landscaping practices. The SmartScape™ web site is an interactive "how to" guide that walks you through the SmartScape™ concept. SmartScaping™ creates a lush and colorful oasis for your family and for West Texas' native flora and fauna.
