Texas SmartScape® Garden

EEC Texas SmartScape Garden

Texas SmartScape® Demonstration Gardens


A learning environment which incorporates the site's natural habitats and topography as an interactive, educational demonstration focused on drought-tolerant landscaping and water-efficient irrigation.

This garden showcases native and well-adapted plants for the North Texas area, which are both heat and drought tolerant. Visitors learn how to conserve and preserve the health of water and soil. It features a meandering trail, artwork made of recycled materials, and intimate areas perfect for conversation.

Free & Open to the Public


The gardens are free and open to the public every day during daylight hours. They are available for rental and provide a lovely outdoor setting for private events and business functions.
