Natives on the Bayou

Nestled in a gated community and backing up to the bayou this beautiful home lacked curb appeal. The home owners desired native plants that would attract wildlife while being visually pleasing for the neighbors to enjoy. We planted the bank beside and behind the home that is viewed from a deck with 100% natives found in naturally in Houston. The homes front door is actually on the side of the house and the neighbors entrance sits right on the property line. We created a welcoming path of cream limestone and flanked it with plants that will be interesting through out the year. We installed a cedar trellis that functions as a fence between the two properties using cedar post and cabling.
