When Sarah Munro moved back to her childhood home in Temple, she built a house on wild land she played on as a kid. Rather than plant grass in the new development, she wanted to preserve the native wildlife’s habitat. Before supplementing existing natives in her new garden, she worked with artist Brooks Gist to direct now-flooding street water away from the house and capture it with rain gardens, French drains and gravel/stone channels. Sarah loves art, too, and to complement her living sculptures, she added local custom art from intimate to outstanding.
