Keep Coppell Beautiful to recognize residents with sustainable landscapes
Tour of Coppell: Texas SmartScapes applications to have your home featured on this year’s tour are now being accepted. Each year, Keep Coppell Beautiful recognizes Coppell residents who have implemented Texas SmartScape concepts into their landscapes. These homeowners are eligible to be featured on the Tour of Coppell: Texas SmartScape, Saturday, October 3. Last year’s tour drew over 1,100 people from all over the region!
The application focuses on the types of Texas native and adapted plants incorporated, use of compost and mulch, irrigation practices, and turf reduction. The applications are open to Coppell residential landscapes only. Applications are due August 7, 2015.
Landscapes that incorporate these sustainable techniques conserve water and protect water quality, as well as save the homeowner on their water bills! The Texas SmartScape program has a plant database of over 200 native and adaptive plants that thrive in the North Central Texas climate. The website also walks you through the steps to create your own lush landscape that uses little water, fertilizers and pesticides, and also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
Homeowners chosen for the tour will receive a Texas SmartScape™ yard sign.
