Welcome to Yucca Kingdom Nursery
at Kyle Flea Market, Kyle, Texas
Kyle Flea Market is housed in a spacious abandoned metal Machine Shop building located on the south bound access road of interstate 35 half way between
Kyle Parkway and Center St.
The very sturdy metal building was built by Longhorn Machine Works in the early '50s.
The machine shop was a success for the Kyle community for years employing almost 100 employees manufacturing high pressure steel pipe for the construction industry and oil fields along with other products pertaining to the machine shop business.
The Longhorn Machine Works shut down under the pressure of "Jimmy Hoffa's"
"Machine Operaters Union", in an attempt to "UNIONIZE" the machine workers.
The futile attempt of the union to water down the "Texas Right To Work Law" in the '60s,
The Longhorn Machine Works became "The ALAMO" of the union wars.
A local family bought the sprawling machine shop property and eventually opened
the Kyle Flea Market on the property. The flea market has successfully grown to almost
100 permanent tenants inside with many more tailgaters out in the grassy area two days
a week, Saturday and Sunday.
Come and see us.

Yucca Kingdom Nursery - AKA - Native Desert Plants Nursery
A Web Site with Native Desert Plants that originate in the Chihuahuan desert of West Texas.
No Roses or Posies
proudly offer to the hard working yard keeper,
who is faced with a dwindling water supply and higher water rates,
an alternative yard that is not wilting, and yet appealing to on
This alternative is:
Native Desert Plants in your yard that require little attention and hardly any water.
We offer a package of plants or seeds that allows you to gradually convert a small portion of your yard at a time to the desert scene.
Every thing in the desert either "sticks ", "stings ", "bites " or "burns you". We spotlight the GENESIS "StickYou", and do so very carefully. Plants listed here have the personality of Tough, Mean, Cruel, Unforgiving and down right Ornery but still have the beauty of Mother Nature and all the pretty flowers and fragrant smell of the best. These plants in your yard will allow you to go to the golf course or fishing, instead of mowing the lawn and paying a high water bill. Don't make a major project out of xeriscaping your yard, begin in an isolated corner and add a little each time. The rewards are many.
One method to get started in a small way is to locate the spot on your lawn that you have a hard time mowing because of the shape. Lay out the boundary and take a look at it. Imagine the area filled in with cheap, low grade dirt that will make the area higher like a two foot thick mound. Desert plants love low grade soil and thrive in it. Except for a 2 or 3 foot border, the grass can stay in place with a plastic cover over it. The plastic will serve two purposes. The first will keep the grass from growing up through the dirt and the second to keep the water from rising up from the bottom. Desert plants thrive in well drained shallow soil. Repeat this process with as small of an area that fits your time schedule until you have a DESERT YARD with little up keep and water use.
