Being as it has been one of the driest years on record for the State of Texas, homeownersâ€™ landscapes have suffered. Letting your grass go is not a huge loss, since grass can be re-seeded without a huge cost. However, replacing trees and large shrubs can be very expensive. That is why some landscapers suggest making it a priority to save your trees and not to worry too much about your lawn.
