Recently I found this great book (The O-B Book) and great forum. By lurking here for a couple of weeks I've already gotten a lot of useful information that I couldn't possibly get from anywhere else.

I'll soon be starting construction on our new home in NE Mississippi. Doing our best to go green as much as we can afford.  Along with going green we will endeavor to have a "Xeriscape" (zir-e-skap) yard - using plants that have low water requirements.

I'm looking for plant suggestions and other's experiences with this type of yard.

Native Plants selected for your site's climate require less maintenance and less water.  Native plants are also better for the native insects, birds, and other species.

One of the best resources for you will likely be the

Mississippi Native Plant Society
111 North Jefferson Street, Jackson, MS 39201
Tel: 601-354-7303

[For those from other regions interested in this thread see: plantnative.org/comm_service to locate your local native plant society.]

The Plant Native website also has excellent resources from their homepage for identifying local plant species and locating local native plant nurseries.  The native plant nurseries should have excellent expertise in xeriscaping for your climate.

Please keep us all posted on your plant selections and share pictures of your landscaping.  I'm in NE Alabama and many of the native plant species will be the same.  I'm considering doing the same thing with my yard, but I likely won't break ground on my new home for another 18 months or so...  By then maybe you will have lots of experience (and photos of your yard) to share with us.

regards,

Grant

Thanks Grant, I will certainly share with you and others our plant choices and the results of their growth.  Even though our lot is on a lake, we plan to conserve water, time, and work.
