No grass really likes shaded areas, however, some do tolerate shade better than others. Palisade Zoysia, developed by TAMU, is our favorite shade tolerant variety. We love it for its low-light and heat tolerance, hardiness in colder conditions, and low water consumption. Overall, its an excellent low maintenance lawn grass.
That’s a fairly complex question, and the answer can get somewhat nuanced. In general, you want to choose high quality, frost-proof cast stone, glazed clay, or terracotta planters. We purchase our pots from Jackson Pottery, located on Lemmon Ave. in Dallas, TX, and have been thrilled with the longevity of their products.
The trick is a combination of properly prepared pots, drip irrigation, and well-drained soil.
In short, yes. Drip irrigation systems a wonderful way to cut long term water costs. They’re also great for the drought prone, and water-restricted areas around North Texas.
