Austin Neal

When Austin Neal moved to Austin, he dug in feet first into new garden territory. Starting from scratch in a barren lot, he livened things up with a front courtyard filled with food and drought defiant plants for wildlife, framed by a hand-made fence with neighborly portals.  Ipe and decomposed granite paths set the stage among artistic touches that wind up on a multi-level deck to sip a cold one to the sounds of a two-level steel-framed water runway.
