About Me

Carol Feldman Portrait

LANDSCAPE DESIGN TECHNIQUE and LANDSCAPE DESIGN STYLE

In my landscape design practice, I primarily work with native Texas and well-adapted plant materials. These plant materials generally require less maintenance, are more disease resistant and can be quite drought tolerant because they are indigenous to the area. Native plant materials provide food and shelter for wildlife. These plant materials in combination with their placement in the landscape can create a garden for wildlife. Woods, prairies, riparian areas and other natural landscapes are the basis for many of my designs. The attention to the natural placement and diversity of plant material provide habitat for birds and other wildlife.
