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.

      • 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).
