LET’S GO OUT AND PLAY

It’s that time of year to get out and play. It took us most of late winter to finish up the large retaining walls in the backyard. They are 40′ long runs of black lueders limestone. The 18″ x 18″ x 5′ blocks do a great job of holding everything back and defining a beautiful flat terrace of zoysia turf. The remainder of the sloped backyard is planted with Texas sage, mexican feather grass, purple fountain grass, orange african bulbine, rosemary, and a variety of other succulents.

LET’S GO GREEN

The holly will provide a year-round screen of deep deep green color and privacy for the front of the home. Outside of those are four gorgeous cedar elm trees for additional privacy during the spring, summer and fall. They’ll bloom with vibrant green buds in the spring and turn to a fiery yellow in the fall just before losing their leaves.
