Austin Rock Garden Commissioned Landscape Project

Published on November 20, 2019

Rock Garden designed and installed in Austin, Texas. Drought proof, Deer proof xeriscaping!

The designer envisioned a flowing stream rock garden. We accomplished this using a disappearing fountain made from a piece of honeycombed limestone the owner had on the property. The water peculates up trough the top of the bolder and recycles. From there we painstakingly stood each Mexican River Rock stone on its edge, being careful to mimic currents and waterflow. The Mexican River Rock “river” is accented with a red glass rock border and sand bars made from Jelly Bean river rock. The end swirls into infinity. Xeriscaped and deer resistant plants were used along with flagstone to create a low profile green space. An uplit architectural metal panel anchors the end at the wall.
