Tampa Goes Xeric
Who wouldn’t want to replace your lawn with 10,000 succulents?
Xeriscape landscapes are kinder to the environment and less expensive than lawns because they don’t require a lot of watering.
For many yards here, succulents and cactuses achieve all of the above without soil amendments.
Mitch Kessler has 10,000 of the plants in his North Tampa yard. “They’re eco-friendly and require almost no care,” he says.
My parents live near Tampa in the winters now. They have no yard at all, what with living in a condo. But they do have lots of Tillandsias in the trees on the property.
Anyway, that article was from the Tampa Tribune.
