English country cottages inspired the landscape at this home in Hyde Park. Flagstone pathways and stepping stones meander through the yard and gardens. Annuals flank the walkways while perennials, shrubs and ornamental trees address all of the seasons through blooms and foliage color. There is a sense of whimsy and mystery created by arbors and vine covered pergolas. The focus is keeping year around color and interest, without using too much water, with the Texas extreme climate.
