Powerful Hilltop Perspectives


AUSTIN, TX,  from Central Texas Gardener 

When Travis County Master Gardener Kirk Walden and wife Valerie, an artist, bought their razed property overlooking Lake Austin, they gave it artful perspectives. Working with Botanical Concerns, they channeled the hillside’s flooding waters through dry creek beds. Terraced beds and berms partner texture, color, and wildlife habitat without obstructing the lake view. In front, layers of low-water-use plants in sun to part shade resist browsing deer.
