Another element in considering green is whether the plant is deciduous or evergreen. I believe a good mixture of these two is key to a balanced landscape and landscape design in Houston. Of course another factor is looking at whether the plant you are using is native to Texas.

When I implement my various elements to a landscape design I am of course looking at how the landscape will look 5 years from now, 20 years from now and after that. 

Design Elements Weathered Rock Landscape

A quality landscape designer will consider how texture impacts his landscape design when applying design elements weathered rock. Another key factor in a quality Houston TX landscape is the background. When we install our landscapes elements, many are in Houston TX backyards where there is a wood fence.

Many homeowners do not realize that the fence is the background to the weathered rock landscape. In some instances in our advanced and creative landscape design and installation it just requires pressure washing the fence and applying a powerful and long lasting stain. 

I recommend oil based stains and we use many industrial grade stains that last a long time. In some instances in our installation of our elements design, we may add some decorative trim pieces to the fence. It makes them looks extremely beautiful!

The point being in a quality landscape design and installation, don't build a awesome landscape in front of landfill. Consider the background basic elements of landscape design and the design comes out flawless and the investment becomes apparent that it was a good one.
