What are some inexpensive ideas for sprucing up a landscape?

I live in northeast Texas and am searching for some cheap ideas on developing a better landscape for my yard. Besides purple sage and lantana, can anyone suggest any flowers/plants that are really heat tolerant and drought resistant that look nice? Thanks.

  1. I am in noth central TEXAS (cowtown)and here is a cool link about TEXAS native plants there is a nursery in New Braunfels called Shumakers sp? that specializes in natives
  2. I live just east of Dallas, and the house I rent has Turks Cap, a tall evergreen shrub that comes back every year http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/aransas/turkscap.htm Here's a site listing good Texas Perennials http://bexar-tx.tamu.edu/HomeHort/F4Best/nTxLSPerennials.htm
