Over the years, I’ve transformed my Austin, Texas (zone 8b) high-maintenance, water-guzzling “yard” to a water-conserving, wildlife-friendly, no-mow set of gardens. Here, you can read about my philosophy of gardening: why I believe it’s important and responsible to incorporate native plants and water-wise practices in a wildlife attracting and regionally appropriate landscape.
Nice to meet you via, Val Erd my blogging friend of about 4 years or more. I live about 100 miles north of you and have a semi wooded one acre “let go” just for wildlife and the birds.
Nice to meet you as well! I’m glad you’re letting your land go natural–the wildlife of Texas (and some human Texans, too!) thank you!

Oh my one acre has been wild since 1963. It’s not a recent happening. I have only a smidgen of grass for the dogs to roll on and that’s native Bermuda grass. Everything else is in native trees and shrubbery and most of that is native. I do have 6 fig trees that I planted for “Thee, wee and me.” (That is God, wildlife/birds and, for me to eat).
