The Texas Urban Landscape Guide is a resource of science-based information related to the design, installation, and maintenance of WaterWise landscapes for the principal plant adaptability regions in Texas.
This Urban Landscape Guide to wise water management in the landscape is a supplement to the Best Management Practices Manual produced by the Texas Water Conservation Task Force. In that Manual, references are made to installing water wise landscapes, but that term is not defined. The Texas Water Development Board funded preparation of a written manual with a supporting Web site to help those involved in developing and implementing best management practices.
The type of information needed to implement WaterWise landscape practices varies considerably depending upon whether you are a homeowner looking for information to assist in designing your home landscape, a green industry professional seeking information of a specific nature for a business application, or an employee of a municipal water management agency needing specific guidelines related to urban landscape water use.

The Guide is divided into three tracks:
• Home owner/property manager
• Nursery/Landscape professional
• Municipal/government employee
