Look What I Can Do!
“Hey Ma, look no hands!”, well that’s not entirely true, I do lay out the plants but Mother Nature gets most of the credit. Not because she (Mother Nature) plants for me but because she and I are symbiotic. I get what she is putting down as it were.
Contrasting shapes, textures and colors play brilliantly with low light conditions and it take a knowledgeable designer to make the right selections allowing for seasonal interest as well as pops of color.
There is no need to use cactus in Xeriscape. There are an abundance of beautiful, lush plants and trees that are super low water and low maintenance.
Food, herbs and native plants are an excellent combination for Xeriscape beds. By using a combination of evergreen and deciduous plants you can have a rotating garden as well. A little imagination can go a long way.
Custom stone and pavers
Shade gardens can be a challenge for most but I love the opportunity to play with light and competing textures to my advantage. This picture above is also a space with some serious grade issues. It goes straight down hill and has been bermed with stone and planted beds.Facebook, YouTube, or better yet give me a call in or near Austin at 512-733-7777 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
