DALLAS, Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — In the interests of maintaining ever-green lawns, particularly in the areas where water is a premium, a growing tendency shifts towards homeowners and developers who have chosen an alternative way of working with nature by creating endemic plants – trees, shrubs, grasses and groundcover. One prominent builder advocating this approach is Marcus Hiles, Dallas expert developer whose portfolio entails more than 15,000 luxury and upscale apartment units constructed to date.
“In diversifying our lawn plantings, we help to improve the existing wildlife habitat as well as reduce neighborhood displeasures like lawnmower noise, air and water pollution and yard waste,” says Marcus Hiles, Dallas developer. When natural landscaping is properly used for homes it should require very minimal effort to maintain when compared to other options requiring no pesticides, fertilizers, or excess watering. Native plants have evolved and adapted to local conditions over thousands of years making them the ideal choice, especially over a lawn. If properly planted, they should be able to survive both winter cold and summer heat, resist pests and diseases, and flourish without soil amendments. One of the most recognized benefits in using natural landscaping is the attraction of butterflies, birds, pollinators and other wildlife.
Some of the more popular native plants in Texas natural landscaping include Salvia Farinacea (“Henry Duelberg”), which produces gorgeous purplish-blue flower spikes; “Texas Gold” columbine which is very rare in the wild and sports buttercup-yellow flowers with long, fernlike foliage; and lacey oak, a smaller tree that reaches 25-35 feet tall making it a lovely shade tree that is highly tolerant of diverse environments.
Marcus Hiles, Dallas property development authority has spent more than three decades building properties that reflect his unique vision of luxury living – one that is affordable to working class Texans through upscale residential rental homes, townhomes, and apartments. Hiles is an active philanthropist, giving back to his community in his support of local schools, children’s hospitals and low-income meal programs.
