Yard Xeriscaped With Gravel


Anonymous added on May 26, 2017 | Answered

Hello, I work with a property management company in Austin, TX. One of our properties was xeriscaped with gravel and over the course of a year, many weeds and plants have come up through the gravel. I'd like to know how to advise the owner and tenants of the proper way to maintain the yard moving forward. I'm attaching photos of before and after. Thank you for any advice you may have! Regards, Lillie Lee Assistant Property Manager High Fidelity Properties, LLC P.O. Box 10743 Austin, TX 78766 512-910-4408

A garden left with little or no maintenance can easily become overgrown and weeds will invade the landscape.
Identifying what is plant material and what is weed, is the first task that needs to be done.
Here are some great articles that will help you understand this type of landscape.
