The landscape and gardens of Austin, Texas, are captured in this garden’s design, Corten steel and sandstone, materials commonly used in the region, are a significant part of the garden’s hard landscaping. A structure made from aged, rusting scaffold poles topped with corrugated iron and a water feature constructed from blocks of natural stone set in a circle and supporting a corten steel bowl form the focal points. The pathways are constructed from crushed stone and reflect the colours found in the region, with boulders creating a feeling of the Texan landscape. The planting includes Echinacea, Acacia, Agave, Ratibida and Coreopsis
