My goal in landscape design is to create private spaces immersed in nature, using native and well-adapted plants, strategic hardscaping, and soil contouring techniques to minimize the amount of upkeep for the homeowner. I feel that with Austin’s fantastic climate for much of the year, it’s a crime to not have a fun outdoor hangout in your own yard. And when it’s baking hot under the Death Star, a colorful or shady view outside your window can do wonders for your mental health.

Though I have an eye for interior design, my own attempts in my yard were leaving me unhappy with the results. Lori was able to quickly see the problem and formulate a plan, then put it into action. Her design and plant ideas are fantastic – creating that lush feeling using natives and adapted natives, with low maintenance. Something VERY hard to achieve in Austin’s climate. — Dr. Robin Mayfield
