Xeriscaping Laredo: LISD Facility Edition

The new LISD food processing center looks pretty nice, and I have to give props to the ones in charge of the landscaping.  Throughout the exterior you see a good helping of native plants.  And even though the design team stuck to some drought-tolerant staples, I'm glad that they used mesquite trees to offer shade for visitors and employees. 

A mesquite could've been planted in this section, even with the power lines overhead.  All they would need to worry about is some regular pruning, but the crape myrtle is a good choice. 

This job gets LaSanbe's seal of approval.
