i live in bandera tx. and in responce to the drought and the deer re-actions... i know that they will eat anything when they're hungry and usual food is'nt available...but they have been eating my cactus plants..not just the local variety's but heavy thorned types that have 1-2in needles... i was surprised ..but more so when i discovered they keep eating them....

Just wondered if you had a newsletter. We just moved to the hill country (near New Braunfels) from Dallas. I am wanting to redo the backyard and could use some help. I was planning on putting down weed barrier cloth and then decomposed granite, river rock, and mulch and create a more pleasant environment. I have been reading that the weed cloth is a BAD idea. So what do I do with the existing grass/weeds? Just mulch over the top 4-5" thick? It is a big area so don't think there is enough newspaper in the entire county to cover the area.

Thanks for the list! Will try to plant more of these for the bees.

Thanks Ruth and welcome to Texas. I've sent you a list of nurseries by email. Thanks for the question.

I'm so happy I found your site. Gardening here in Texas is nothing like it was up North. Thanks for the tips. I do have a question about where to get some of the native plants you list.
