Welcome to our world of horticulture. We moved from the Houston Gulf Coast to the NW Austin suburbs in early 2006. Our yard in Austin has changed dreastically in response to the droughts of recent years. We have completely transformed our entire yard into a water saving landscape in view of the chronic droughts by removing all water thirsty St. Augustine lawn and replacing it with native and adaptive plantings, and alternatives to lawns. What little turf grass we have is native Buffalo grass. We have an 86 sq. ft. lean-to greenhouse which is filled to capacity each winter with tropical and tender plants that Bob likes to grow. . Bob has a particular fondness for plant cultivars that are variegated, dwarf or other unusual growth forms and in continuing learning about a broad variety of plants. Bob is a Master Gardener in Travis County, (and formerly a Master Gardener in Harris County)TX. Bob has also been actively giving presentations to garden organizations and communities about xeriscaping and other gardening topics. Lana enjoys a wide variety of flowering plants and garden designing. We are both fully retired and enjoying time to pursue hobbies and interests full time. We both live a very environmentally friendly life-style (e.g. drive a hybrid vehicle, recycle everything that is possible, avoid using chemicals in the garden, and encourage wildlife into our yard). Please consider doing the same. Thank you for visiting our site.
