Stephanie and Todd Lanier

When Stephanie and Todd Lanier bought her childhood home in San Antonio, they updated the 1973 garden style: lawn and overgrown foundation shrubs.  A bed at a time, they dug up grass to spark up the color palette in shade and sun, including lots of plants for wildlife.  In a sunny spot, the built raised beds for a kitchen garden. Throughout, they pumped up the soil with compost and designed drip irrigation for efficient watering.  Follow Stephanie’s garden adventures on her blog, Rambling Wren.
