"I am not a vegetarian because I love animals, I am vegetarian because I hate plants"
(A Whitney Brown)
As any gardening or landscape publication will tell you, native plants capture the zeitgeist of modern landscape design. Environmental friendly and requiring less resources than traditional landscapes, native plantings are especially effective when used in this area's beautiful natural settings. We can help you with the entire process from the selection of authentic natives to the art of designing with these restrained plants. Planting with natives is a lot like being married to me: patience is required. While not for every garden or every gardener, when used in an apt setting they can be quite stunning (see pics).
In addition to the above photos, you will find blueprints of designs of actual all native landscapes we have installed.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or for a design consultation.
P.S. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas at Austin (Wildflower.org) is a great resource.
