Synopsis
Award winning Texas based Landscape architect Christine Ten Eyck (Ten Eyck Landscape Architects) is known for her beautiful and environmentally sustainable designs. Here in a woodland area of San Antonio, Texas, USA, Christine Ten Eyck has transformed and restored this six acre private garden into a beautifully designed green, lush space in which native plants are thriving alongside attractive, diverse and durable materials. Wherever possible Christine has chosen native plant species that are resilient to the local climate, here temperatures range from 40 degrees in the summer months and plunge below freezing in the winter months. Consequently, the palette of the garden is primarily green, from the vivid chartreuse of the Muhlenbergia dumosa grass to muted dusty blue-greens of the Agaves and Yuccas. Taking her inspiration from the creamy white limestone and concrete and coppery rusty shades of the house (designed by architect Tobin Smith), Christine has utilised sawn blocks for Limestone for seating, copper water features, rusted steel planters and large limestone slabs laid in irregular patterns. Through carefully selecting native plant species and combining them with durable materials, Christine Ten Eyck has linked this contemporary home both seamlessly and beautifully with its surrounding natural landscape.
