Need help choosing plants for front yard

I have a big yard. It is very hot in Texas. It's like to be able to enjoy shaded spots in our yard without the concern of harmful roots. Also, I need a sun resistant plant to fill up the bare spots.

    look around the neighborhood, what is growing and looking nice? your count extension office will know what can stand the heat.

    And check your garden centers. They stock plants for your zone usually shade plants together under shade, full sun plants in an open area etc. Good luck

    1. Look it up on line
    2. Consult a landscaper
    3. Call a local college, university or community college and ask if they have landscaping programs where students work for a reasonable hourly rate doing work such as this and get credit toward their courses.

    I worked for a woman who taught landscaping design at the University of Maryland, and her students did this type of work for credits. Doesn't hurt to inquire.

    Mexican Sunflowers good in sun/dry areas - are annuals ... shade plants usually also enjoy extra moisture -- but Impatiens work well ...
