In this episode of Central Texas Gardener: When designer Amy Voorhes traded Boston for Austin, she swapped months of snow for drought. She bid farewell to former plant loves, adapting to a new palette of water thrifty and wildlife wise perennial beauties. At home, out front she removed lawn and updated its 1950s landscape. She banished invasives from the tiny interior courtyard, magnifying its space with stylish raised beds. Flowering vines, herbs and perennials fragrance it up and bring wildlife fingertip close.
