For Allen, an eco-friendly house also includes an eco-friendly garden landscape. The ideal garden is low maintenance and doesn’t require a lot of resources such as water. Local switchgrass is the perfect choice for a Green garden. Switchgrass doesn’t require a lot of care, it grows year after year, and it looks great!
